February 23, 2013

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Authorities in Western Pennsylvania said a man has been shot to death in Pittsburgh just a few weeks after his brother was also killed.

Police said officers responding to a report of shots fired found 26-year-old Brian Wright unresponsive at an intersection in Larimer shortly after 2:30 a.m. Saturday.

Cmdr. Thomas Stangrecki said Wright was shot in the chest and died at the scene.

Officials said his older brother, 32-year-old Maurice Bruce, was shot and killed Feb. 4 after leaving a Homewood bar.

Police said no arrests have been made in either case and investigators have not identified a motive for either slaying.
