Cambria County Homicide Investigation

Officials have released more information surrounding the suspicious death in Adams Township Saturday morning.

According to the coroner’s office, the victim has been identified as David Comar, 53, and that his death has been ruled a homicide.

Chief Deputy Coroner Joe Hribar stated that Comar died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Cambria County District Attorney Greg Neugebauer said this is the first homicide in Adams Township since 2007.

Officials say Comar’s wife was injured and sustained a non-life threatening cut.

Authorities say the incident happened in a “quiet area on a dead end road” and that this was a “very targeted” attack.

Neugebauer said that there did not appear to be a struggle and that no firearm has been recovered.

Along with Adams Township police, which is the primary agency in the investigation, Richland Township police and Pennsylvania State Police also responded according to Adams Township Police Chief Kirk Moss.

Moss said federal officials with the Secret Service are also involved.
