Medics rushed him to UPMC Presbyterian, where he was pronounced dead at 1:13 a.m. Sunday.
In a separate shooting, police responded early Saturday to Bennett and Tokay streets in Homewood, where they found two people had been shot.
A 29-year-old man had been shot in the back. A 28-year-old woman had been shot in the arm.
They were in a car when someone opened fire on the vehicle, causing it to crash into a pole.
