Man wounded in alleged robbery attempt dies

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Authorities say a Pittsburgh man shot three times during what police believe was a robbery attempt last summer has died.

The Allegheny County medical examiner's office says 24-year-old Julian Carpenter died Monday night at a hospital.

Carpenter was shot July 2 in Pittsburgh's Spring Hill-City View neighborhood. Investigators allege that 20-year-old Onaje Dickinson and a 17-year-old girl plotted to lure him to a home to try to rob him.

Dickinson was shot to death two weeks later by a Penn Hills police officer after investigators believe he was involved in another fatal robbery. Police say a gun found after Dickinson was shot matched the gun used to shoot Carpenter.

The teenager faces robbery and conspiracy charges, but her attorney is seeking to have her case moved to juvenile court.
