PITTSBURGH - Police continue to search for the person responsible for fatally stabbing a man in a North Side Giant Eagle parking lot.
Investigators said the incident happened around 1 a.m. Friday in the lot on Cedar Avenue.
Officers said they were called to the area after someone saw the victim, 58-year-old Delrio Ivy, lying on the ground with a stab wound to the chest.
The victim was taken to Allegheny General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
People who knew Ivy said they were shocked to hear of his death.
“He is very friendly, talkative. He loved to talk,” said friend Candy Branch.
“I was so shocked. I called my wife and said that’s Delrio,” Curtis Tucker said.
Tucker said Ivy was known to walk around the neighborhood, but he has no idea why he would have been in the area at 12:30 in the morning.
Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Sonya Toler said surveillance cameras may have caught the crime on tape, and investigators are reviewing the tape for any clues. Toler did say, however, the footage wasn’t clear.
“It was not very clear, and did not give us much information,” Toler said.
Toler did not know what Ivy and his killer were fighting about before the stabbing took place.
“It’s scary because we don’t know what’s going to happen. I don’t feel safe anymore. I can’t live in fear. It’s getting out of hand,” said North Side resident Marlene Taylor.
Police said they did bring someone into police headquarters for questioning early Friday, but determined he was not involved.
