The man who was shot to death in Homewood over the weekend was identified Monday as a resident of the community, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said.

Lavar Rich, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene of gunshot wounds of the trunk, the spokesman said.

Police were called at 1:14 a.m. Sunday for a report of at least a half-dozen shots fired near the intersection of Race Street and Brushton Avenue, said Pittsburgh Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Sonya Toler. Rich was found face down in a grassy area off Race Street, she said.
