Omar Islam was Murdered by 3 Men, for his Jacket, in Pittsburgh

October 12, 2013 Pittsburgh (KDKA) – Police are investigating a fatal shooting along the East Busway early Wednesday morning.

According to police, the incident happened at the Homewood Station around midnight.

An Allegheny County medical examiner has now identified the victim as 21-year-old Omar Islam of either North Side or Mt. Oliver.

Police believe Islam was waiting for the final inbound bus of the night shortly before midnight. Surveillance video captured the shooting and police have determined that three suspects initially tried to rob Islam.

Islam tried to fight back against two of the suspects when he was shot multiple times. The suspects then stole the victim’s personal property and fled the area.

Police have found a red Mercury Mountaineer, which was seen leaving the area. The vehicle was found on Jonathan Court in Homewood Wednesday afternoon.

The driver of the vehicle has been located and identified, and is currently being questioned by police. The driver of the vehicle has not yet been identified.

All three suspects are males. Two of them were wearing black clothing and one had a white, hooded-sweatshirt with a logo on the front.
