Pittsburgh Crime Stoppers is looking for the public’s help in solving an open homicide case.

Police are looking for information on a Nov. 6 shooting that left 21-year-old Calvin Anderson dead.

Police initially responded to a call of shots fired in the 6800 block of Alcoma Drive in Penn Hills. Police discovered a silver Ford Fusion parked in front of 6827 Alcoma Drive. Anderson was found unresponsive in the driver’s seat and pronounced dead at the scene.

Allegheny County Police Department Homicide Unit was contacted to assist with the investigation. The investigation revealed that Anderson was seated in the driver’s seat of the Ford Fusion when an unknown person shot him through the driver’s side window of the car.

Anyone with information is asked to call Pittsburgh Crime Stoppers at 412-255-8477. A reward of up to $1,000 is offered for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of individuals wanted for the crime. Callers may remain anonymous.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
