    I live in the neighborhood and was attacked by a guy on friday night infront of my building over my cell phone and 20 bucks in cash I now have 3 slashes on my head and alot of stitches!!!! sure its a nice neighborhood during the day but at night, Not all that safe!!!!!!!!

    1. Moorewood towers says:

      The 3 best cops who worked that area were falsely accused of some BS and now everyone suffers because they are gone! Thanks a lot city of Pittsburgh and Jordan Miles….you are responsible for the decline of my neighborhood. I may start a march to get the 3 guys back out here so I can safely walk down the street again!

      1. Sara Kane says:

        I couldn’t agree more, this area is out of control and the police arn’t doing anything because when they do they get punished…I need to move!

      2. William Steinberg says:

        Moorewood towers I couldn’t have said it better, when those 3 guys worked out here it was just a safer place. Lately things are out of control over here. It seems the criminal element isn’t afraid any more and they seem they have won this area as their own. I WANT THE 3 COPS BACK OUT HERE !

    It happened in broad daylight during rush hour traffic, its not safe during the day either. I was standing at the bus stop in front of Market District when the shooting occurred. There were people all around.

    I live a few blocks away from where this happened (S.Aiken/Baum). Like a few people said before, this area is decent during the day, but at night, clutch your purse and carry a weapon, and ALWAYS stay alert. I have been approached twice since moving here last September. Both occasions resulted in many impolite words being exchanged. Some people just like to start problems, but those people need to realize not everyone will tolerate being a victim, and some of us carry guns.

  7. stop watch the news and read a book says:

    lol you people are probably suburbanites whining about crime.

    you watch too much tv. bad stuff can happen anywhere. thats why they call it bad stuff.

    clutch your purse and carry a weapon? thats ludicrous.

    1. B says:

      Your comment is very interesting…after reading it a few times, it still isnt clear what your point is.. You’re saying “You People” are from the suburbs yet most posts are people saying they live in that area. Secondly, most posts are people saying bad stuff happens everywhere, so your agreeing with everyone? And finally, “clutch your purse and carry a weapon” is ludicrous”. The point every one is making is that no matter where you are at its not safe, for example Shadyside is suppose to be a upscale, safe area, yet people are rob on a weekly basis there. So, it is a very good idea to hold on tight to your valuables and legally carry a firearm, bc no matter where you are, you can be a victim of a armed robbery.

    Jason – 412-255-2827. I was outside giant eagle and heard gun shots but didnt see anything. How did it all go down?

    1. Jason says:

      Thanks, I was the second car in line after the light turned 2 gunshots were fired then a male ran up the street. If you see a man that is about 5’10 ish, wearing a black hoodie with detail, African American, Blue Jeans with fading (low and ratted) red underwear showing due to the low pants skinny please call the number you gave me or 911.

      1. Jason says:

        I just learned that he was outside Panera Bread around 4;00 – 4:15 pm begging for money, if you saw him call 911 or 412-255-2827. Also he was not entirely black he was mixed.

      2. a girl says:

        i thought you were 12? if you are driving, we have bigger problems than a shooter on the loose

  10. Jason says:

    Gee real nice to say to a kid who is only 12 making his first 911 call ever, just for the record, your on the news too!

  11. you are all idiots says:

    oh man, this guy went to buy an ipad and didnt have a coupon. i think thats how it all started (ps u shouldn’t put your cell number on a comment) then, he got mad.

    how about…giving your tips to the police. NOW THERES AN IDEA!

    i forget the number for the police though. i’m sure you cna find it. (sarcasm)

    1. You're the idiot says:

      You’re the idiot, that number was where you call with information for the police. How about you read before you start posting negitive comments.

    Yeah, in the name of Jesus, spread the word
    No weapon formed against me shall prosper
    And every turn that rise against my judgment
    Thou shall condemn, Lord, give me a sign

    For this is the heritage of the servants of the Lord
    “And their righteousness is of me,” said the Lord
    Amen, Lord, give me a sign

    concelle and carry!

    .40 Cal., nice defense caliber luckily for him he didn’t pick on you.

    1. B-Safe says:

      My comment above was a reply to B-RICH which was removed by some COMMIE LIBERAL.
      Luckily we still have the right to defend ourselves in spite of B-RICH’S comment being removed by someone who favors the criminal.
      Now the issue is freedom of speech thanks to the COMMIE LIBERAL who could have rebutted his comment but instead had it removed.

  15. Haa Haa Haaaaaa says:

    LMAO!!! This “Jason” character is ridiculous… Sounds like you made that story up- if so, you really need a new life! Still lmao… 😀

    crime can happen anywhere

  17. Tick Tock says:

    I knew Shadyside was going down when the Apple Store had a lot of smash and grabs from September up until now. The city blocked off a section of Negley going towards Shadyside in the 80’s to force the bad ellement to go back into East Liberty to shop, but they are moving past Ellsworth now.
