PITTSBURGH — A Pittsburgh Public Schools spokeswoman says an elementary school lockdown has ended after police secured the scene when a man was found dead in a car parked in the school's lot.

Meanwhile, Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Sonya Toler says the shooting is considered a homicide, though police have yet to confirm the victim's identity.

Police believe he may have been shot about 11 p.m. Tuesday when some residents heard gunfire in the area. But the body wasn't found until a witness saw a parked car missing a window and moved closer to find a man slumped over the steering wheel and three bullet casings near the car shortly before 3 p.m. Wednesday.

The lockdown was precautionary because the car was parked in the Sunnyside Elementary School lot. It was lifted at 3:45 p.m.

Police haven't named any suspects.
