A 33-year-old mother of four was among three people killed Saturday night when a gas-station parking lot argument escalated into an exchange of gunfire. Jacquelyn Mehalic was on her way to work as a waitress around 10 p.m. Saturday when gunfire broke out in the 300 and 400 blocks of Cedar Avenue near Allegheny Commons in Pittsburgh’s North Side, her father, John Mehalic, told the Trib.
“She was a very positive, outgoing person. She’d lend a hand to anyone,” said a distraught John Mehalic, who lives near Latrobe. “You hear about shootings in Pittsburgh all the time, and you never expect to get the call.”
