A 20-year-old McKeesport man was found dead Thursday night in an alley just off of Dinsmore Street.

Keith Jones Jr. was pronounced dead at the scene just after 10 p.m., the Allegheny County medical examiner’s office said.

In a prepared statement, county police said McKeesport police and paramedics were dispatched after a caller to 9-1-1 reported that a man was lying in Spear Alley.

Jones had been shot multiple times, county police said.

County homicide detectives are investigating, but said the motive for the shooting is unclear and they were still working to identify a suspect or suspects on Friday afternoon.

Anyone with information concerning the incident is asked to call the Allegheny County police tip line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS (1-833-255-8477). Callers may remain anonymous.

County police also may be reached via Twitter and Facebook.

According to court records, at the time of his death, Jones was free on $5,000 bond after being released from the Allegheny County Jail on July 2.

Court records indicate Jones was awaiting formal arraignment July 27 in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court on charges of possession of a controlled substance and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle stemming from an April 7 incident in the city.
