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.
