A man was shot to death early Friday in what Pittsburgh police said was the second fatal shooting in three days at the Northview Heights public housing complex on the North Side.

Maurice Freeman, 21, of Northview Heights, died at Allegheny General Hospital at 2:17 a.m., the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said. He was shot about an hour earlier.

Two men were shot, one fatally, in the same complex on Wednesday.

Eugene T. David, 19, of Forest Hills died and the other victim, who police said was 41, suffered a gunshot wound to his leg. He was taken to Allegheny General Hospital, where he was in good condition.

Friday morning's shooting occurred near the 100 block of Hazlett Street. Freeman was found in a courtyard with at least one gunshot wound to the chest. He was unconscious when paramedics arrived, police said.

Police said the motive for the shooting is unclear and there are no suspects. Police urged anyone with information to call the homicide squad at 412-323-7161. Callers may remain anonymous.
