Western Psychiatric Gunman Identified

John Shick

Pittsburgh Police released the gunman’s identity from the Western Psychiatric shootings.

John Shick, 30, of the Shadyside area in Pittsburgh had a history of mental issues. He’d been treated on several occasions at Western Psych in the past and had gone there Thursday afternoon with a revenge motive – to kill his doctor.

Shick carried two fanny packs and two guns. He was wearing a T-shirt, jeans, two watches and a raincoat when he walked into WPIC and open fire around 1:40PM Thursday.

Police also searched Shick’s apartment in the Royal York Apartments at Bigelow Boulevard and North Dithridge Streets.
