One man was shot to death early Saturday in McKeesport — one of three separate shootings in the city that left one man wounded, authorities said.

Tezjuan J. Taylor, 20, of McKeesport was shot to death just before 1:30 a.m. at the Sunoco convenience station on Lysle Boulevard, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office.

A man was shot about 10 minutes later in the 300 block of Whigham Street, an Allegheny County emergency dispatcher said. That man's name and condition were not available.

It wasn't clear whether the shootings were related, and Allegheny County homicide detectives could not be reached to provide additional information.

The third shooting occurred just before 11 a.m., county dispatchers said.

Dispatchers said they had no report of injuries, but there was police activity at Crawford Village and Highview Garden apartments.
