A man was shot and killed Monday night in front of his home in Pittsburgh's Troy Hill neighborhood.

The shooting occurred shortly before 9:30 p.m. when residents heard more than a half dozen shots fired in the 1100 block of Goettman Street, near the Cowley Athletic Field. When police and paramedics arrived, they found the man lying between two parked cars with what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the head.

As city homicide detectives investigated, other officers were searching for two men seen running from the area after the shooting.

A neighbor, Debra Tomason, 27, said the victim — whose name was not immediately released — lived at the home with his mother and siblings.

“They are always nice, never a problem,” Tomason said. “When I moved here in November, they offered to help me move it. They were always sitting on their front step, never bothering anyone. They always said hello.”

Tomason said she was inside when she heard the shots being fired.

“You never go outside right away. Then I heard their mother and a cousin screaming and came out,” Tomason. “The cops got here real quick.”
