If there’s one thing growing up in the rural South taught me, it’s that you should never urinate off a porch onto someone with a loaded weapon.
Unfortunately, such wisdom is not common in Pennsylvania.
My Cox colleagues at Pittsburgh’s WPXI.com report a gentleman enjoying a game of dominoes decided, at 11 p.m. Tuesday, to use the bathroom in public.
As 35-year-old Roosevelt Robinson, of Wilkinsburg, relieved himself over a side railing of what must have been an apartment balcony, witnesses heard someone shout “Yo, yo!”
Then, several gunshots were fired from below. Robinson was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died.
No arrests have been made.
