Man shot and killed while urinating from balcony

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 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.
