PITTSBURGH — A 72-year-old man was found shot to death Friday morning inside his apartment in Pittsburgh's Hill District, authorities said Sunday.
Police were called to the apartment on Centre Avenue to perform a welfare check when they found the man dead on the floor.
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.
