A man was shot and killed Wednesday afternoon in Penn Hills.

Police and paramedics were called at 2:33 p.m. after neighbors heard gunfire in the 4800 block of Verona Road. They found the man, who appeared to have been shot at least twice, dead near his car parked along the side of the road, said James Morton, Allegheny County Police assistant superintendent. His name was not released by authorities.

County homicide detectives and Penn Hills police believe the shooting was the result of a drug deal gone bad, Morton said. At least one man was being questioned by homicide detectives.
