Pittsburgh teen found dead in bullet-riddled car

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police are searching for whoever shot a Pittsburgh teen in the head before he was found dead in the back of a bullet-riddled car.

Police haven’t identified any suspects in the death of 17-year-old Dayjon Parker.

He was pronounced dead at the scene about 10:15 p.m. Monday in Homewood, a crime-ridden Pittsburgh neighborhood near Wilkinsburg, an equally violent suburb where police believe Parker was actually shot before someone drove him into the city.

Allegheny County and Wilkinsburg police were also investigating Tuesday.
