Police are investigating the death of a North Side man found dead early today on the street. The man's car and identification were missing.

Michael Paul Schacht, 58, was found at 12:42 a.m., lying face down in the street unresponsive and bleeding from a head injury near the intersection of Brighton Road and Brighton Place, according to Pittsburgh police Sgt. Ronald Griffin.

Schacht was an usher for the Pittsburgh Pirates who had worked Friday's night game. The game went into extra innings and ended at 12:45.

Medics were summoned and transported Mr. Schacht to Allegheny General Hospital where he died at 1:31 a.m.

The vehicle the victim was driving, a 2002 Silver Hyundai Sonata, with Pennsylvania registration plate number GBY-1530, is missing, as is Schact's identification, Griffin said.

The Allegheny County medical examiner's office said the cause of Schacht's death has not been determined and is pending toxicology studies.
