Authorities on Thursday released surveillance images of a male suspect in a July 29 fatal shooting in McKees Rocks.

McKees Rocks and Allegheny County Housing Authority police need help identifying the man who they believe killed Stephon Jeffrey, 22, at Uansa Village.

Jeffrey was found by police with multiple gunshot wounds lying on the ground near a maintenance shed on Robb Street around 6:30 p.m.

He was transported to an area hospital and died a short time later.

Police said Jeffrey and a man were fighting when the victim was shot and the suspect fled the scene.

The suspect appears in the photographs to be a black male wearing a black jacket and pants with white stripes down the sleeves and pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call Pittsburgh Crime Stoppers at 412-255-TIPS. Callers can remain anonymous. A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
