Pittsburgh police charged a man with homicide early Sunday following a fatal stabbing on the North Shore.

Joden Rocco, 24, is accused of killing Dulane Cameron Jr., police Sgt. William Vollberg said. The incident happened around 2 a.m. in the 300 block of North Shore Drive. The 24-year-old Monaca resident was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Investigators told Tribune-Review news partner WPXI-TV the stabbing happened as people were leaving bars in the area. That block, located between PNC Park and Heinz Field, is home to several bars and restaurants.

No further information about the suspect or the victim was released.

The investigation is ongoing.

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.
