A Duquesne man died after being shot in Homestead early Sunday, an official with the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said.

Qaeed Braxton, 36, was shot at the intersection of Eighth Avenue and Amity Street at 12:34 a.m., Investigator Curtis Williams said.

Braxton was pronounced dead at 1:06 a.m. at UPMC Mercy, Williams said.

After an autopsy Sunday, the medical examiner's office ruled Braxton's death a homicide, caused by a gunshot wound to the back.
