PITTSBURGH (AP) — Authorities say a father and son have been charged in the shooting death of a man in the parking lot of a western Pennsylvania convenience store.

Police allege that the victim was arguing with the older man Saturday afternoon outside the Lawrenceville store.

Lt. Dan Herrmann told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (http://bit.ly/SCoVpE ) that the younger man shot 46-year-old Gary Hager of Ross Township shortly before 4 p.m. Saturday.

Police said Hager was able to run into the store for help before collapsing. He was pronounced dead at UPMC Mercy minutes later.

Fifty-two-year-old Darrell Tigney and 24-year-old Maurice Tigney were charged with criminal homicide and conspiracy.

Listed numbers for them could not be found Sunday and it was unclear whether they had attorneys.
