Officials: Homestead man killed in shooting at McKeesport Family Dollar
A man shot and killed Thursday morning inside the Family Dollar on Versailles Avenue in McKeesport has been identified.
Dwayne Fuller, 24, of Homestead was pronounced dead shortly after noon, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Allegheny County Police Sgt. Venerando Costa said police are trying to identify two men involved in the killing.
It was a “targeted shooting,” Costa said.
Police are reviewing the store’s surveillance video to identify the suspects.
The victim encountered two men at 11:05 a.m. inside the store, and some sort of a struggle took place, police said. The victim was shot multiple times in the torso. He died at an area hospital.
The two men fled the store on foot, police said. Police left the scene around 2 p.m., but the store remained closed.
Allegheny County Police were assisting McKeesport’s department in the investigation.
A neighbor, Carol Klimko, lives across Versailles Avenue from the store. Klimko was sleeping when it happened.
Her sister works at the store and told Klimko she was working when a man came in, waved a gun, and shot another person.
