Gutierrez-Faust was pronounced dead Saturday afternoon of injuries he suffered during the incident, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Police said it was reported that two men invaded the home in the 2900 block of Grover Street in McKeesport. A witness told police there was a knock at the rear door of the home and when they answered, a firearm was pointed in their face.

A witness identified Hale, and it was reported that Hale hit Gutierrez-Faust in the head and face multiple times and then strangled him, according to the criminal complaint.
