A 31-year-old man died at UPMC McKeesport hospital after a shooting late Wednesday night on Soles Street.

Niko Dawson was pronounced dead in the emergency room early Thursday morning, the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office said. He had been shot multiple times.

McKeesport police were dispatched to the 1200 block of Soles Street just before midnight for a report of “shots fired.”

According to Allegheny County police, when officers arrived, they found a 24-year-old woman had been injured by a grazing gunshot wound to the leg.

She was treated at the scene by paramedics and released, police said.

Police then determined that a second victim, later identified as Dawson, had been driven to UPMC McKeesport for gunshot wounds to the torso.

County police are asking anyone with information concerning the incident to call the tip line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS (1-833-255-8477). Callers may remain anonymous.
