A feud between two men led to the shooting death of one of them Friday night in Robinson Township, police said.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that 51-year-old Michael McDonald was the victim. He was shot at a home on the 2000 block of Forest Grove Road just after 9 p.m.

According to county police, officers arrived at the scene, where they discovered McDonald suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. He was transferred to a local hospital where he died.

Police said McDonald drove to the home of a 61-year-old man with whom he was involved in an “ongoing dispute.”

Upon entering the home he threatened the man.

The resident shot the man in the chest with a shotgun, police said.

No arrest have been made. County officials said they will work with the District Attorney’s office to see if any charges will be filed.

The investigation is ongoing.

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.
