WILKINSBURG, Pa. —
Police are investigating an unusual shooting in Wilkinsburg late Tuesday night.
Investigators said the victim was playing dominos with friends on a porch of a home around 11 p.m. when he decided to urinate over a side railing.
According to witnesses, someone below the porch could be heard yelling, "Yo, yo!" Moments later police said several shots were fired striking 35-year-old Roosevelt Robinson, of Wilkinsburg.
Robinson was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died.
Neighbors said shootings in the area aren't uncommon.
"We don't normally have quiet evenings around here," said neighbor Richard Stephens. "I was sitting in my bedroom when I heard the four gunshots go off."
So far, no arrests have been made.
