Allegheny County homicide detectives were called to a home on Pittsburgh Street in Springdale Borough on Monday afternoon.
The woman and a man, both of whom had been shot, were found by a maintenance worker, Sgt. Todd Dolfi said.
County homicide detectives were called to the apartment in the 1000 block of Pittsburgh Street at about 3:40 p.m.
“They’ve only lived here two weeks,” neighbor, Janelle Conroy said. ”They just moved in.”
The names of the deceased have not yet been released.
Police said a maintenance worker discovered the man and woman when he stopped by just after 3:30 Monday afternoon.
“As soon as I came home a maintenance man was here to change locks, to install new locks for them, and he went inside and found them, and I guess he shot right back out because he didn’t want to disturb anything of course,” Beth Hovet said.
Beth Hovet lives in one of the connected apartments.
“I haven’t seen them in a while,” Hovet said. “A lot of people around here are really close. They kinda look out for each other.”
