    According to people who knew McDonald and the other man, the fight had been simmering for days over money. The man who shot McDonald claimed he was owed money for doing dump truck work for McDonald's company.

    After many ugly and threatening texts between the men, McDonald reportedly drove to the other man's home in Robinson Township to confront him. Police said he barged in, and that's when the homeowner pulled out a shotgun.

    Allegheny County Police said they are letting the District Attorney decide if any charges will be filed. Some police sources told Channel 11 that probably would not happen.
