PITTSBURGH — A search for a missing woman took a deadly turn when a man was shot and killed after confronting a Pittsburgh police officer with a gun Thursday night.
Pittsburgh police responded to the 1400 block of Rydal Street in Pittsburgh’s Westwood neighborhood around 8:58 p.m. to assist Robinson Township police with locating a missing woman.
The woman from Robinson Township was reported missing and endangered by family earlier that evening at 6:45 p.m.
Police said the missing woman was found inside the home. It’s unclear if she was being held against her will, or what brought her to the home. We’re working to learn more about those circumstances.
