Teenager Robs, Carjacks PNC Park Usher, Leaves Him To Die

This story is all kinds of horrifying. And, yeah, in part because we've seen how many cops are present at Pirates games to tase drunk folks.


Writes the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Police said today that a 17-year-old boy came across a PNC Park usher who was having a heart attack in his car, pulled the man out and onto the ground, went through his pockets and stole his wallet, then drove away in the vehicle, leaving the usher to die in the street.

The teen is not charged with homicide in the death of 58-year-old Michael Schacht, who was headed home after a 14-inning game at PNC Park on April 9. The suspect is chaged with car theft and robbery as a juvenile, and police did not name him.

Police said Mr. Schacht was found unresponsive on Brighton Road on the North Side and was taken to Allegheny General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
