Man shot, killed, woman injured in shooting outside East Hills bar

October 2, 2018

A man was killed and a woman was wounded in a shooting early Tuesday outside an East Hills bar, according to Pittsburgh police.

John M Faulk, 45, of Pittsburgh’s South Side Slopes neighborhood, was taken to a hospital in critical condition. He later died.

The shooting was reported at 2:15 a.m. in the 7900 block of Frankstown Avenue.

Zone 5 police officers responded to a Shot Spotter alert and found Faulk lying outside Lady Di’s bar, suffering from a gunshot wound. Inside, they found a woman who also had been shot.

It doesn’t appear the shooting was connected to the bar, police said. The preliminary investigation shows the shooting occurred outside the business, when an unidentified man approached Faulk and opened fire. One of the bullets traveled into the bar and struck the woman. No other injuries were reported.

The woman was taken to a hospital in stable condition. She was not identified by police.

Police ask anyone with information on the shooting to call 412-323-7800.
