Park Avenue Shooting Victim Identified

Authorities have identified the man gunned down Monday afternoon in the Moxham section of Johnstown.

In a press conference Wednesday morning at the Cambria County Coroner’s office, officials identified the victim as 41-year-old Marvin Price, of Johnstown.

Authorities say Price was shot and killed in a vehicle on the 600 block of Park Ave. around 2 p.m.

The shooting happened near Saint Patrick’s Catholic Church and the school there was placed on lockdown as police responded.

Police later determined there was no threat to the school or students.

Coroner Jeff Lees says Price was found in the driver’s seat of the vehicle with multiple gunshot wounds.

Investigators did not elaborate on how many times or where Price was shot.

District Attorney Greg Neugebauer says they believe this was a targeted incident and there is no danger to the public.

Authorities say the shooter does remain at large but investigators are looking into several leads.

Johnstown police released surveillance photos of the suspect Tuesday morning.

They say he’s described as a light skinned black male that stands about five feet, eight inches tall.

The Cambria County Crime Stoppers say they are offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.

Their number is 1-800-548-7500. Citizens can call anonymously.
