MCKEES ROCKS, Pa. (AP) - Police are seeking a male seen fleeing the scene of a shooting death at a public housing complex in Pennsylvania.

Officers and paramedics were called to the Uansa Village housing complex in McKees Rocks near Pittsburgh in western Pennsylvania at about 6:20 p.m. Saturday.

They reported finding a young man with multiple gunshot wounds who later died at a local hospital. The Allegheny County medical examiner’s office identified him Sunday as 22-year-old Stephon Jeffrey.

Lt. Andrew Schurman of Allegheny County police said the victim had encountered his assailant in the rear of a building at the complex where the shooting began. Witnesses reported a male fleeing the area immediately afterward.

Police are asking anyone who saw or heard anything to call county police or contact them on social media.
