1 shot dead after reported Pa. music store attack

BETHEL PARK, Pa. (AP) — Police in western Pennsylvania say a man was shot to death after reportedly brandishing a wooden club in an attack on the owners of a Pittsburgh-area music store.

Police Chief John Mackey told reporters that the 32-year-old man entered Armen’s House of Music in Bethel Park shortly before noon Saturday.

The man left but returned a few minutes later carrying the club, which police said he used to strike the wife of the store owner.

Mackey said he then attacked the owner, and the two struggled briefly before the owner shot and killed the attacker.

The store owner and his wife were taken to UPMC Mercy for treatment of unspecified injuries. Police said they are expected to recover.

Police and county homicide detectives are investigating.
