PITTSBURGH - Authorities continue to investigate after two men were found shot to death inside a sport utility vehicle late Tuesday night in Garfield.
Officers were called to the intersection of Brown and Elora ways, where a Cadillac Escalade had hit Radiant Life Alliance Church, just before 11 p.m. Tuesday
Lt. Daniel Herrmann said paramedics pronounced the men dead at the scene of what appeared to be gunshot wounds.
The victims were identified as 36-year-old Jamarow Trowery and 18-year-old Rashad Freeman.
“(Someone who was supposed to meet the victims) was on his way out of the house and said he heard gunfire -- about five shots -- and went out and saw the car drifting down the street and into the church,” said Sonya Toler, of the Pittsburgh police.
Investigators said Trowery was driving the vehicle, and they found a gun on the floor in the backseat. It’s unknown if the gun was used in the crime.
Homicide detectives are trying to find additional witnesses, and so far, a motive has not been determined.
“There is some concern that we are looking into some kind of gang affiliation with this, but this could also be a common street crime,” Toler said.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact police.
“Anyone who may have knowledge of the nature of relationship between the people in the car or any info that would be helpful,” Toler said.
Pittsburgh police said this is the third double homicide of the year.
