A 16-year-old boy died after being shot at least twice Thursday evening in Pittsburgh's Allentown neighborhood.

A spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said Deondre Pace of Allentown died at 8:14 p.m. at UPMC Mercy, Uptown.

Police were called around 7:15 p.m. to the 300 block of Beltzhoover Avenue where they found the teen lying in the middle of the street with “at least two gunshot wounds to the upper torso,” city police Lt. Daniel M. Herrmann said.

Herrmann said that “two to three black males approached him and at least one of them pulled a gun and shot three times.”
