18-year-old dead, another person hurt after 2 shootings on same Pittsburgh street – WPXI Pittsburgh

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.
