A reward is being offered to anyone with information about a shooting that killed a man outside a Penn Hills bar in January.

Paul McMillan, 48, of Verona was found inside his vehicle at the Lounge on Verona along Verona Road with multiple gunshot wounds to his abdomen. He died at UPMC Presbyterian later that night.

McMillan was involved in a fight inside the bar moments before being shot, a Pittsburgh Crime Stoppers news release said Thursday.

“McMillan had gotten into his white Dodge Ram pickup truck and was driving through the parking lot … Several gunshots were then heard coming from the parking lot,” said Crime Stoppers.

Paramedics were already at the bar for a separate call, according to county police. They treated McMillan for his gunshot wounds while an ambulance came to transport him to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Pittsburgh Crime Stoppers at 412-255-8477. A reward of up to $1,000 will be offered to anyone who leads police to an arrest and prosecution of the individual responsible for the homicide. Callers can remain anonymous.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
