Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help in connection with the investigation of a murder on Wesley Street in May.

McKeesport police were called to a home in the 1800 block of Wesley Street just after 10 p.m. May 27 after receiving reports that a man had been shot there. Police found Antonio Wallace, 31, lying on the living room floor and suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the back.

Wallace was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Allegheny County police homicide detectives responded and found that Wallace had been sitting in a chair in the living room with his back to the window when someone opened fire on him from outside the house, striking Wallace multiple times. Detectives recovered 15 spent shell casings outside the living room window.

Anyone with information that could lead to the arrest and prosecution of Wallace's murder is being asked to call Pittsburgh Crime Stoppers at (412) 255-TIPS. A reward of up to $1,000 is offered for information. Callers may remain anonymous.
