Man shot, killed during domestic dispute in Pittsburgh neighborhood

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Police say a man has died after he was shot during a domestic dispute in the city’s East Hill neighborhood Saturday morning.

According to police, officers responded to the 2100 block of Park Hill Drive around 11:30 a.m. for reports of a shooting.

Police say the incident started as a domestic situation between a man and a woman. The woman shot the man. He died on scene.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner identified the man as Antoine Lee Williams Jr, 30.

After a “brief standoff,” police say the woman was taken into custody. Later, the woman, identified as Charlotte Hill, 35, was charged with criminal homicide.

A criminal complaint alleges Williams arrived at Hill’s apartment Saturday morning, and they got into a physical altercation that began inside but moved outside.

Surveillance video showed Hill firing several shots across a road at Williams, who was “at a distance” and not in the frame of the video. The two were not in physical contact with each other at the time of the shooting.

The complaint alleges Hill verbally threatened a witness after the shooting.

Hill is in the Allegheny County Jail awaiting a preliminary hearing. She was denied bail.
