UPDATE: Coroner IDs Teen Fatally Shot While Riding his Bike in Erie

Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook has identified the teenager shot and killed while riding his bike in Erie Saturday afternoon.

Cook identified the victim as 18-year-old Jacob Pushinsky
, of Erie. Pushinsky and his friends were riding their bikes in the 200 block of East Eighth Street around 3 p.m. Saturday, when Pushinsky was shot in the upper left torso. He was rushed to UPMC Hamot where he was pronounced dead a short time later, according to police.

Neighbors who live near the crime scene said they heard Pushinsky cry out for help when he was shot. Carolynn Baumgartner said Pushinsky's friends stayed by his side, as he lay bleeding in the middle of the street. "When he first got hit, he was yelling, 'someone help me, someone help me," she said. "And the young boys who had to watch in horror as their friend who they had been having a good time with that day, taken from them so cruelly and viciously, it's just sad."

A Facebook page created in Pushinsky's honor said he was a member of East High School's JROTC program who dreamed of becoming a captain with the U.S. Marines, a dream cut short by gun violence.

"There's so many young people that just graduated high school and they have their lives just starting for them," said Baumgartner. "And to have it wiped out in one single second, I mean, bang his life is over. And that is just so sad."

Police describe the suspect as a black male who was wearing a black shirt and tan shorts at the time of the murder. It's unclear if Pushinsky's murder was a random act of violence, or if he was targeted.

Erie PA

Teenager Derrys Sanders will serve the next 35 years in jail for the death of 18-year old Jacob Puchinsky.


Police believe that Sanders killed Puchinsky following an argument over taking Puchinsky's bicycle.

Sanders was only 14 at the time of the shooting, making him the youngest murder defendant in the history of Erie County.
