Pittsburgh police seek information on the stabbing death of a 33-year-old man who was discovered laying along a street early Sunday in Mt. Washington.

Police said that an officer working a secondary job in the area was notified about 3:21 a.m. by a passerby that a man was on the ground, bleeding near the CoGo's on Bailey Avenue.

Responding officers discovered the victim laying on the ground and he appeared to have been stabbed. The victim was transported by an ambulance to UPMC Mercy in critical condition, but he later died of his injuries, police said.

The victim has not yet been identified by authorities.

According to the preliminary investigation, the stabbing may have stemmed from an earlier incident inside of Satalio's Bar located at 27 Bailey Avenue. Violent crime detectives are following several leads in the case.

Anyone with information is asked to telephone police at (412) 323-7800.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
