Two men killed in daylight shooting in Pittsburgh's Larimer
Police are investigating the shooting deaths of two men Tuesday morning in Pittsburgh's Larimer neighborhood.
The men were shot and killed in front of an Auburn Street apartment building about 10:20 a.m. Tuesday, Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Sonya Toler said.
Toler did not release the men's names or ages.
Neighbors told the Tribune-Review that they heard about six gunshots. Toler said the city's Shot Spotter gunshot detection system recorded at least five shots, but she said construction in the area could have “mimicked” the sound of gunfire.
A woman approached the scene at 11:45 a.m. and screamed, “Who shot my son?” Family members were waiting to speak with detectives at the scene.
Toler said police made drug arrests in the area last night and are trying to determine if the shootings and the arrests are connected.
She asked anyone who saw the murders to call police.
“The public can always help,” she said. “The best way to solve crimes is when regular people step up and say, ‘This is what I saw.' ”
