Allegheny County homicide detectives have issued an arrest warrant for a man in connection with a slaying in Monroeville.

Investigators are searching for Jamey McKee, 24, who has ties to Wilmerding, Penn Hills and Braddock.

McKee is wanted in the fatal shooting of Mark Rucker Jr., 21, who was found on Saturday lying in a stairwell in Building 225 of the Cambridge Square housing complex off Mosside Boulevard, said county police.

Rucker died of bullet wounds to the head and abdomen, according to the county medical examiner.

McKee is about 5 feet, 9 inches tall and weighs 185 pounds. He was driving a blue 2004 Nissan Maxima with Pennsylvania license plate HXW 7590.

Anyone with information about McKee is asked to call the county homicide squad at 412-473-1300 or 911.

Investigators have not revealed a motive for the slaying, but a friend and neighbor of Rucker's said she heard him arguing with a man — possibly about a woman — a few minutes before the shooting.
