Authorities said a man died after he was shot in the head at a Pittsburgh-area intersection over the weekend.
The Allegheny County medical examiner's office identified the victim as 36-year-old Qaeed Braxton of Duquesne.
An investigator with the medical examiner's office said Braxton was shot at an intersection in the borough of Homestead.
He was pronounced dead just after 1 a.m. at UPMC Mercy.
Police said they arrested Wilbert Johnson and charged him in the shooting. He is set to be arraigned Monday morning.
Investigators said Johnson and Braxton had gotten into an argument about a girl prior to the shooting.
