A man injured in a shooting in Homewood last week died at a hospital Wednesday night.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office identified the man as William Scott, 24, of Penn Hills. He died at about 9:30 p.m. at UPMC Presbyterian.

Pittsburgh police believe someone crept out of weeds on a lot at Frankstown and North Lang avenues and fired on Scott as he sat in the driver's seat of a parked rental car about 12:20 a.m. Aug. 27. Scott crawled to the nearby 2nd Time Around bar, where patrons called 911, police said.

Following surgery, doctors had upgraded his condition to stable.
