    Erik Lowry, who owns Pittsburgh Tactical Firearms, posted an ad on social media, offering a 5 percent discount one day after the fatal shooting.

    Lowry told Channel 11 News that he is not having the sale to capitalize on the crime. 

    “This is where I live. This is where my kids live. OK? I want people to be safe. I want my neighbors to be safe. I want my community to be safe, and the way to do that is to protect yourself,” he said.

    Lowry said he offered the same discount following a violent home invasion in Munhall last year.
