Two dead in separate city shootings

The Post Gazette reported on Saturday that two people were found dead at two separate city shootings. William Ford, 31, was found dead at the scene. Ford was well known by police for previous drug and gun charges. Ford was found on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds to his torso. The second victim was Devin Gastion, 21, who was also found on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds. He was then taken to the Allegheny General Hospital, where, he was pronounced dead soon after. No arrests have been made on either killing.
By reporting these stories that occurred on the 13th and the 14th of February this story has immediacy. The Post Gazette immediately reported both deaths immediately after they took place. This story also includes emotion; many of the people that are related to the victims are affected by the traumatic news. Also, the local residents that live near the locations where both killings took place must be affected emotionally by their safety. There is also a huge impact on the residents about their neighborhood safety, and their maintained skepticism from the violence in their neighborhoods.
