PITTSBURGH — Police were called for two shootings, one of which turned deadly, in about three hours on the same street in Pittsburgh’s Northview Heights neighborhood.
Just after midnight Thursday, 18-year-old Tyjuan Malachi was shot in the head in the 800 block of Mt. Pleasant Road, police said. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition and later died.
Officers were alerted to that shooting by a ShotSpotter notification for multiple shots fired. They quickly found the victim because they were already in the area for an earlier shooting, police said.
The earlier shooting happened about 9:15 p.m. Wednesday, also in the 800 block of Mt. Pleasant Road. ShotSpotter notifications indicated that several shots were fired.
A short time later, a man showed up at a hospital with multiple gunshot wounds, police said. His condition has not been made available.
Both shootings are under investigation.
