    Officers found Valorie suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in a car that was in a lot across from Rumerz Sports Bar & Grill. A woman was able to escape from the car and avoided injury, police said.

    Valorie was taken to a hospital in critical condition, where he later died, according to the medical examiner's office. 

    Investigators believe the shooting was a targeted attack, but no suspects have been identified.

    “Police believe that they were sort of lying in wait near the parking lot. There could be one or more shooters at this point,” Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Cara Cruz said.
