The man who was fatally stabbed by a Penn Hills homeowner during a home invasion was identified on Friday as Devin Davis, 21, of the North Side, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said.

Davis, who police said worked as an assistant chef at a Pittsburgh restaurant, was one of three men wearing ski masks who police said went into the garage of a home on Edinburg Drive around 7:30 a.m. Monday as a woman returned from taking her children to school. He was stabbed in the back during a struggle with the woman's husband.

The other two men fled and remain at large, police said. No charges have been filed against the homeowner, who was identified by neighbors as Eric Timbers, a power-lifter.
