he man who died during an attempted Penn Hills home invasion on Dec. 19 has been identified by family members after a delay of several days, according to the Allegheny County medical examiner’s office.
The man, who was pronounced dead at the scene on Edinburg Drive at 7:43 a.m., was identified as 21-year-old Devin Davis of the North Side. Mr. Davis, who was stabbed several times in the back and the neck by the homeowner, died of a stab wound in the back, according to the medical examiner’s office.
Police said three men entered the home through a garage and struggled with the homeowner. Investigators said Davis was stabbed and the homeowner pushed him out of the front door, where neighbors saw the body on the porch and called 911 while the homeowner and his wife fled for their own safety.
The other two men fled and remain at large. Police said no charges have been filed against the homeowner.
