JOHNSTOWN, Pa. -- Officials in Cambria County have identified the victim of the most recent shooting in Johnstown, marking the city's third homicide of 2014.

Cambria County Chief Deputy Coroner Jeffrey Lees said Monday morning that Zach Andrews, 21, was shot and killed inside a home at 710 Grove Ave. at about 6 a.m. Sunday in the Moxham section of Johnstown.

Lees said Andrews died from multiple gunshot wounds to the head and ruled the death a homicide.

Another person was wounded in the shooting, investigators said. That person's identity and condition were not released, but that person was being treated at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center.

Officials have scheduled a press conference for 2 p.m. Monday regarding the shooting.

Johnstown police, detectives and state police crime scene investigators spent much of Sunday at the Moxham shooting scene gathering evidence.

This is the second homicide in Johnstown in less than a month.

Tony Philips was shot and killed in the parking lot of Edder's Den bar in the Oakhurst section of Johnstown the afternoon of March 30.

Joshua Cambric and Jeremy Woodard were arrested shortly after the shooting. Cambric is facing homicide charges for allegedly shooting Philips, and Woodard faces charges for allegedly driving the getaway vehicle.

A third man, Keith Reed, is also facing homicide charges related to the Philips shooting. Investigators said Reed was with Philips and got him to go with him to Edder's Den, where Cambric then shot Philips. Police continue to search for Reed.

In January, Jareek Adams was shot and killed outside of Building 36 at the Oakhurst Homes. Investigators said Earl Mitchell Jr. shot Adams the night of Jan. 25. Another man, Jonathan Moore, was also injured in that shooting.

Mitchell was arrested weeks later by authorities in northern Virginia and was returned to Cambria County in late March, where he is incarcerated.
