Ryan Giernacky, who lives at the complex, was going for coffee when he made the disturbing discovery. He said he heard some sort of gasping behind the dumpster.
“I saw his leg with his boot. I sailed around the fence and saw she was bleeding from her face,” Giernacky said.

No one else is involved in the shooting, investigators said.
“I was in shock,” Giernacky said. “Honestly, because there’s a Home Goods right here, and I live just around the corner. Just knowing something happened 30 feet from your doorstep is crazy, right? »
Officers did not say who pulled the trigger or what led to the shooting.
“I was watching and wondering what was going on. I was shocked to hear what it actually was,” said buyer Neal Panza.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Allegheny County Police Hotline at 1-833-ALL-TIPS.
“It’s just a terrible, terrible, tragic event and no one wants it at any time, especially during the holidays,” Panza said.
