Local News

CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — A man is dead, and a homicide investigation underway, after a Wednesday morning shooting in Dale Borough.

Police were called to a house on the 400 block of Cliff Street around 3:00 in the morning after gunshots rang out. The Cambria County coroner ID’d the victim to be 51-year-old Jesus Santiago. The coroner tells us that Santiago was found in the home’s basement with multiple wounds and there were multiple residents in the house.

A few neighbors in the area stated that they’ve seen people coming in and out of the house for the past two months after moving in, saying they felt like something was going to happen at the residence. Another neighbor who asked to remain anonymous said “it’s been a pretty quiet area but many homes are empty at the moment but it is not known to be a nice neighborhood and neighbors in the past they have had a drug problem but never anything like a murder.”

While police currently have no suspect, they stated that there is no immediate danger to the public. Police were able to obtain a search warrant for the home to collect evidence Wednesday morning.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Johnstown Police Department at (814) 472-2100
