New Castle: Two shootings in two days

NEW CASTLE (WKBN) — There have been two shootings in two days at a New Castle housing project.

The most recent one — on Friday night — was fatal.

According to reports, just after 730 p.m. Friday a man from McKeesport was shot and killed at Crestview Gardens on Pin Oak Drive.

The Lawrence County Coroner said he was 29 years old, but his name is being withheld until family can be notified.

Less than 24 hours earlier, New Castle police were at the same complex investigating a non-fatal shooting, reports state.

In that case, a male teenager was shot in the buttocks.

Police are investigating whether the shootings are related.
