County police are investigating the shooting death of the owner of a Route 51 motel and roadside landmark.

Allegheny County Police said officers responding to a 9-1-1 emergency call at 4:15 a.m. today found the victim behind the front desk of the Jefferson Hills Motel in Jefferson Hills, suffering from a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Although the victim's name was not released, he was identified as the 78-year-old "owner of the establishment."

Property tax records list the owner of the Jefferson Hills Motel as Dehnad "Danny" Taiedi, also known as "Chief." He and his late wife, Linda, purchased the hotel in 2001 for $250,000.

Police said it appears that Taiedi was the victim of a robbery before the shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call the Allegheny County Police Homicide Unit at (412) 473-1300. Callers can remain anonymous.
