Pittsburgh police responded to multiple reports of shots fired in Hazelwood early Tuesday morning that led to one man being killed and another wounded.
Jamil Lloyd-El, 20, of Pittsburgh died at UPMC Mercy, an investigator with the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said.
While officers responded to a report of shots fired at 1:25 a.m in the 600 block of Johnston Avenue, they received another call for a man shot in the lobby of an apartment building on Rosselle Court, police said.
A security guard told police the victim said he heard people trying to break into his bedroom and he yelled, then ran to the lobby to try to catch them fleeing. Someone fired shots and the man, 45, was wounded in the left cheek and left ear, police said. He was taken to UPMC Presbyterian in stable condition, police said.
While at the Rosselle Court shooting, police received a report of a man shot in the 300 block of Winston Street. When police arrived, they found Lloyd-El lying on his back while another man held a towel to his chest, police said. A homewoner told police she heard the doorbell ring and when she answered she found Lloyd-El lying on the porch.
Homicide detectives are investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call 412-323-7161.
