A Baldwin Borough man who was shot multiple times just before noon Sunday in the 900 block of Angelo Drive died from his injuries at a Pittsburgh hospital, according to Allegheny County Police.

Police have not identified the 21-year-old victim, but they have an arrest warrant for the suspected gunman, James Darnel King, 33, of Pittsburgh's North Side.

An earlier report said the victim was arguing with someone on the street before he was shot and a tan sedan was spotted leaving the scene.

Police have an arrest warrant for King, charging him with homicide, recklessly endangering another person, tampering with evidence and weapons charges.

King was last seen driving a tan 2008 Hyundai sedan with Pennsylvania license plate JNB 740.

King is described as a 5-foot-7 black man, weighing 160 pounds. He wears glasses.

Anyone who sees King is urged to call 911 immediately. Anyone with information concerning his whereabouts is asked to call the Allegheny County Police tip line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS. Mary Ann Thomas is a Tribune-Review staff writer. Reach her at 724-226-4691, or via Twitter @MaThomas_Trib.

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.
