Gunshot victim found dead in Washington County; victim identified

FINLEYVILLE — A person was found dead with a gunshot wound early Monday in Finleyville, Washington County.

A Monongahela police officer was driving when he discovered the body, identified by officials as 29-year-old Jaisen Irwin, from Monessen, lying in the road near 3608 Washington Avenue around 1:12 a.m., according to the Washington County coroner’s office.

The road was temporarily blocked while crews were on the scene.

A Channel 11 crew on the scene reported a large police presence at a tavern close to where Irwin was found.

Channel 11 spoke to the manager of Bob’s Tavern, and she told us that someone fired gunshots in their back parking lot.

Detectives were at the restaurant early this morning, where they were looking for clues and setting down evidence markers.

However, it is unclear if the body that was found in the street and the shots fired at Bob’s Tavern are connected.
