MCKEESPORT (KDKA) – An elderly woman was injured when someone fired several shots into her daugher’s home early Saturday morning.

According to police, the incident happened around 2:30 a.m. Saturday on Jenny Lind Street in McKeesport.

The family had gathered at the home for a funeral and the house was packed at the time when two gunmen opened fire.

Bullet fragments struck 84-year-old Elizabeth Dumas in the head. She is bedridden.

“When I hit the floor, something grazed the back of my neck,” Linda Brown, the victim’s daughter, said.

Brown and her sister rushed to the bed of their mother.

“She knew something had happened,” Brown said. “She didn’t understand what had happened.”

Dumas’ wound turned out to be minor.

Allegheny County Police are handling the investigation.
