A 27-year-old man was shot and killed while walking home Monday night in Munhall, according to police.

Munhall police and paramedics were called to the area of Maple Street and Ridge Way shortly before midnight.

When officers arrived, they found a man who had been shot multiple times. He was taken to a hospital, where he later died.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s office identified the man as Dai’Shawn Akeem Grace of Homestead.

Allegheny County Police homicide detectives said the preliminary investigation shows Grace had taken a Port Authority bus from Downtown Pittsburgh to the area of West Street and East 20th Street in Munhall and was walking home along Ridge Way when he was shot at the intersection of Ridge Way and Maple Street.

There were no suspects as of Tuesday morning. The motive for the shooting remains unclear.

Anyone with information concerning the homicide is asked to call the Allegheny County Police tip line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS (1-833-255-8477). Callers can remain anonymous.

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.
