Allegheny County police said they are seeking the public’s help as they investigate the July 13 shooting death of Delquay James.

Police and EMS responding to a 911 call just before 8 p.m. found James, 21, dead of multiple gunshot wounds near a vacant home at 2001 Beacon St. in McKeesport.

Witnesses saw a group of men walking toward Hazel Street just before the shooting, according to police.

Witnesses heard several gunshots, then saw a dark-colored sedan speeding away from the area.

Investigators found several shell casings from different caliber handguns at the scene.

James was from Pittsburgh’s North Side neighborhood and had been visiting a friend in McKeesport, police said.

Police are offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible.

Anyone with information is asked to call the anonymous Allegheny County Police Tip Line at 1-833-255-8477.

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.
