Johnstown Homicide

Police are investigating a homicide in Dale Borough after a shooting Wednesday morning left one man dead.

Cambria County coroner Jeff Lees says the man was shot multiple times in the basement of a home along the 400 Block of Cliff Street. Police say the shooting happened around 3:00 am and that multiple people were inside the home, but they don’t know if they are related to the victim. Lees says an autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

No one is in custody and District Attorney Greg Neugbauer says they have a search warrant for the home to further the investigation. He asks that if anyone has any information to contact Johnstown police and that there’s no reason for residents in the borough to worry.

“There’s nothing to indicate that there’s currently any danger to the public. This doesn’t necessarily appear to be a random occurrence based on the scene a few other things so I don’t believe there’s any reason for the public to be concerned at the moment,”

The 400 Block of Cliff Street is back open as police have cleared the scene.
