The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office identified the man as Sam Gantt. His death is being investigated as a homicide.

Gantt suffered gunshot wounds to his head and shoulder, according to the medical examiner.

"That's really crazy and then with these walls being thin I don't see how they didn't hear," Dominique Johnson, one of Gantt's friends, said.

Police told Channel 11 they are confident it's only a matter of time before they learn what happened.
