Natrona Heights man fatally shot

Police said a Natrona Heights man was shot to death early on Saturday in Pittsburgh's Beltzhoover neighborhood.

Antoin Dudley, 35, was killed as he and his girlfriend were returning to her apartment in the 300 block of East Warrington Avenue, according to Pittsburgh police Lt. Kevin Kraus. The pair were returning from a convenience store about 3:40 a.m.

As they walked up the front steps toward the house, a man shot at them from the street, Kraus said.

Dudley and his girlfriend ran to the side of the house, where Dudley collapsed. When officers arrived, they found Dudley in the home's kitchen with multiple gunshots throughout the upper portion of his body. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Allegheny County medical examiner ruled his death a homicide.

Police believe the gunman fired at least 15 rounds from a handgun. Police said there were six people inside the house, ranging in age from 11 months to 22 years.

One bullet grazed the arm of a 15-year-old girl, but she did not seek medical treatment.

Kraus said police aren't releasing information about a suspect or a motive. Anyone with information is asked to call the city homicide squad at 412-323-7161.

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.
