BALDWIN, Pa. – A man who tried to commit a home invasion at a western Pennsylvania apartment was shot and killed by a man who lives in the unit, authorities said.

Joshua Long, 22, of West Mifflin, was armed with a handgun when he went to the apartment in Baldwin around 7 p.m. Sunday, authorities said. He was soon confronted by a 25-year-old man, who got his handgun and shot Long, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
