Atlanta man shot, killed in Pittsburgh, police say

An Atlanta man died Thursday after being shot earlier this week in Pennsylvania, authorities confirmed.

Antwon Jones, 36, was shot early Monday morning in the Bedford Dwellings section of Pittsburgh’s Hill District, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

Lamont Pendleton, 40, of the Hill District, was arrested after a brief chase by a Pittsburth police office on patrol who allegedly saw him shoot Jones, the newspaper reported. Pendleton was not carrying a gun when he was arrested.

He’s been charged with attempted homicide, aggravated assault, carrying a firearm without a license, tampering with evidence and illegally possessing a firearm, the Post-Gazette reported.

As of Thursday afternoon, the charges haven’t been changed to reflect Jones’ death. He reportedly died at 5:35 a.m. Thursday at the hospital.
