PITTSBURGH — Police are investigating two shootings in the same Pittsburgh neighborhood on Easter Sunday that killed one man and critically wounded another.

Public safety department spokeswoman Alicia George says a 20-year-old man was shot in the side in the East Hills neighborhood shortly after noon on Sunday. The victim was hospitalized in critical but stable condition.

Also in East Hills, officers responded to an alert from a gunfire detection system at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday and found a man on the sidewalk. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Allegheny County medical examiner’s office identified him as 22-year-old Meliek Rashad Hemingway.

No arrests have been reported in either case. Police are asking anyone with information to call investigators.
