A member of the Somali Bantu community in Pittsburgh is in critical condition after being severely beaten early Tuesday morning.
The victim is a cab driver who was responding to a call in Beltzhoover.
Many members of the Muslim and refugee community said they're concerned it may have been a hate crime. Pittsburgh Police are investigating, but said there is no evidence of bigotry.
Pittsburgh Police Assistant Chief Lavonnie Bickerstaff said it’s possible the Somali man was beaten as the result of a robbery.
