(WTAE-TV4) – 2 dead, woman wounded after shooting at Silky’s strip club

Victims found at club in Stowe Township and on West Carson Street in Esplen

STOWE TOWNSHIP, Pa. —Two men were fatally shot and a woman wounded in the leg when two groups of customers argued at a strip club early Friday morning, police said.

The shooting was reported around 4:30 a.m. at Silky’s Adult Entertainment Club on Island Avenue in Stowe Township.

“We do believe there was some kind of altercation in the bar,” Allegheny County police Lt. Andrew Schurman said.

Police said two men were shot before bouncers pushed the crowd outside. One of the men — who still hasn’t been identified — was found dead in the parking lot while another was driven away in a private vehicle.

The second victim, 22-year-old Jarrell Green, was found when an ambulance arrived at West Carson Street in Esplen, which is within Pittsburgh city limits but not far from Silky’s.

Investigators say the people who drove Green away from the club have not cooperated with the investigation, but have not been charged.

“We’re asking for anybody that was in the bar, near the intersection, or on the street that may have saw or heard anything around 4:30 to call the county homicide unit,” Schurman said.
