Man fatally shot in McKeesport bar
Allegheny County homicide detectives are investigating a shooting in McKeesport early Friday morning that left one man dead.
At about 1 a.m., McKeesport police responded to a call at Street Stars bar on Sixth Street, where they found a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, county police Lt. Andrew Schurman said.
The county Medical Examiner's Office identified the victim as Jayemond Bailey, 34. He was transported to UPMC McKeesport, where he later died.
The motive for the shooting is unknown, and police are analyzing video shot inside the bar, Schurman said. At least 20 people were in the bar at the time of the shooting, he said.

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.
