Hall, 36, was shot and killed in Homewood early Sunday morning after officers responded to a call about a man brandishing a handgun, according to police.

That suspect – identified as 44-year-old Douglas Watson, Sr. – was arrested by the authorities. However, the arrest has caused a rift between the family of the Hall, and the friends of Watson’s, according to police. Hall is trying to deescalate the situation, but was shot multiple times in the back at close range, one of Pittsburgh’s KDKA-TV reported.
