Pittsburgh Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the people responsible for the May 8 stabbing of a Pittsburgh man in McKeesport.

Irvin Green, 48, was found in the street in front of 1231 Evans Ave. with a stab wound to his chest, police said.

Earlier in the day, Green was seen with a black man at a local market and also fought with a black man who was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt in front of 1231 Evans Ave.

A witness told police it appeared this man stabbed Green. He was seen running south on Evans Avenue and turned left onto Oak Street.

He is described as being in his 20s, about 5’9” tall and weighing about 140 pounds.

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.
