Allegheny County Police were dispatched to an apartment in Carnegie on Sunday, May 12, 2019, after a woman ran to a neighbor’s home seeking help.

Officials on Sunday identified a Carnegie man killed in a double stabbing earlier that day.

Luke Connolly, 51, was pronounced dead just before 8 a.m. in an apartment on Third Avenue, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office.

County police said he’d been stabbed multiple times in the chest.

A 31-year-old woman who was in the apartment was also stabbed in the incident, which happened about 7:30 a.m., according to county police. She ran from the apartment building and sought help at a neighbor’s home on Fifth Street.

Paramedics transported the woman to the hospital in critical condition. Authorities did not release her identity.

Investigators said they have no motive and no suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Allegheny County Police Tipline at 1-833-ALL-TIPS (1-833-255-8477). Callers can remain anonymous. The department can also be reached via its social media sites.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
