PITTSBURGH (KNNP) – Officer Calvin Hall has succumbed to his injuries after he was shot 3-times in the back at an altercation. Hall was on 36-years-old.
In a press release, Chief Scott Schubert spoke about the matter; “It is with great sorrow and a heavy heart that I must inform the public that Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Officer Calvin Hall passed away earlier today at UPMC Presbyterian.”.
Chief Schubert went on to described the incident that led to Officer Hall passing away, and the further steps taken to bring justice for the officer and his family.
“Officer Hall was on the force for two years after previously working for Braddock Police. In his time here he left an indelible mark on his brother and sister officers, as well as the community he served. He was known for his quick smile, ever-optimistic attitude and for his career-long focus on community policing. He was a model officer. He made it a priority to connect with residents, and succeeded in doing so. Officer Hall was shot three times in the back July 14 on the 7300 block of Monticello Street. He fought valiantly for more than three days before succumbing to his injuries. Regarding the investigation, we are investigating Officer Hall’s death as a homicide, and we are investigating the strong possibility, based on gathered evidence, that Officer Hall, who was off duty, was in fact acting under the color of the law when he was fatally shot. That will be determined investigatively at a later date. Ceremonially, Officer Hall will receive the full burial honors that he deserves.”
Officer Hall’d body was transported via a large police motorcade to the medical examiner’s office yesterday.
