A former McKeesport man was found dead early Saturday morning inside a parked car on Riverview Street.

On Sunday night, the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the victim as Jered J. Gambrill, 21. He was pronounced dead at the scene of an apparent gunshot wound.

Allegheny County police said in a prepared statement that a 9-1-1 caller reported a shooting in the 2200 block of Riverview just before 6 a.m. Homicide detectives are investigating but no further information was available.

The medical examiner’s office said Gambrill was living at Lincoln University in Chester County, but it could not immediately be confirmed Sunday night if he was currently a student. Gambrill had been a standout basketball player at Propel Andrew Street High School in Munhall, from which he graduated in 2018.

Anyone with information about the incident is being asked to call the Allegheny County police tip line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS. Callers can remain anonymous, a spokesman said.
