1 person dead after shooting in Pittsburgh’s Lincoln-Lemington neighborhood, victim identified

PITTSBURGH — Another weekend, another deadly shooting in the city of Pittsburgh. This time, in the Lincoln-Lemington neighborhood.

A swarm of police responded to the Homewood north apartment complex on Everton Street just before 6:30 p.m. Sunday after a caller said a person had been shot.

Pittsburgh public safety officials said a man, later identified by the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s office as 40-year-old Tayrod Euegene Ford, was found at the bottom of a stairwell in an apartment building where he died.

Neighbors gathered in and around the complex where the shooting took place, but they didn’t want to talk to us on camera. Police have not yet said if Ford lived in the apartment complex or what may have led up to the shooting, but say they’re still interviewing witnesses and neighbors to learn more.

“Mobile crime unit and detectives are now processing the scene. Currently, there have been two people detained for questions, and the investigation is still ongoing,” said Maurice Matthews, a public information officer with Pittsburgh police.

At this time, no one has been arrested.
