One man died in a midday shooting on Pittsburgh's North Side Wednesday.

According to Public Safety spokeswoman Emily Schaffer, officers responded to Marshall-Shadeland about 1:40 p.m. for a report of gunshots on Shadeland Avenue.

Police said a 29-year-old man was sitting in his black sedan when a thin man pulled up, got out of his vehicle and fired multiple shots at the victim.

Brandon Nguyen of the Marshall-Shadeland area was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.

Schaffer said the victim was the only one in his vehicle, and police believe the suspect was the only one in his.

Visibly distraught neighbors and loved ones gathered on a porch about a block from the scene. They declined to comment.

No arrests have been made.

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.
