MT. LEBANON, Pa. — The parents of a Mt. Lebanon teen whose life was saved in 2007 by an off-duty Allegheny County homicide detective mourned the loss of their daughter's guardian angel.
The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office wouldn't identify the man who killed himself on Saturday night after a four-hour police standoff on Adeline Avenue in Mt. Lebanon, but the house is owned by Allegheny County homicide Detective Lawrence Carpico.
