1 person killed during shooting outside Hill District bar

PITTSBURGH — A person was killed and another person was injured in an overnight shooting in Pittsburgh’s Hill District.

Officers responded to multiple SpotShotter alerts just after midnight Wednesday.

When they got to the corner of Webster Avenue and Lawson Street, they found two men suffering from gunshot wounds.

Derrick Eggleton, 30, was shot in the abdomen and died at the hospital. According to Pittsburgh Police, Eggleton was killed because of a fight over a parking spot outside of the Laundry Mat Bar.

A second man was shot in the arm.

More than a dozen evidence markers were on the ground.

Police said the shooting happened during an argument outside of a bar, but the two men who were shot were not shooting at each other.

Channel 11 News learned at least one house on Webster Avenue was damaged by gunfire.

This isn’t the first time we’ve talked about violence in this stretch of the Hill District. Over the last few months, several people have been shot nearby.

In October, a 16-year-old boy and a man were shot and killed not far from Tuesday night’s shooting.

Over the summer, five people were shot outside of Jay’s Lounge, the bar a block over from the Laundry Mat.
