Bing Liu, 37, a researcher at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, has been found shot to death over the weekend in Pennsylvania. Liu's body had a gunshot wound in the head and neck, and an hour after Liu's body was found a second person, Hao Gu, 46, was found dead inside a car less than a mile away. Ross Township police detective, Sgt. Brian Kohlhepp spoke to NBC News and said that the men were acquaintances.

The officials believe that Gu killed Liu, left the scene of the crime, and proceeded to the vehicle where he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The police also believe that the deaths happened on Saturday night, and that the cause was a dispute regarding an intimate partner. Police have emphasized that the deaths don't have anything to do with the employment at the University of Pittsburgh, or any work surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak.

Here's what police said, "We have found zero evidence that this tragic event has anything to do with employment at the University of Pittsburgh, any work being conducted at the University of Pittsburgh and the current health crisis affecting the United States and the world."

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
