CLAIRTON (KDKA) — Four people were shot while outside an apartment building in Clairton Tuesday evening.

According to police, the shooting happened in the 400-block of Park Avenue around 8 p.m.

Three men and a woman were injured, but are all stable at two different hospitals.

No one has been arrested in the shooting, but a black Mercedes was pulled over and impounded in McKeesport because it was possibly involved in the shooting.

Police also said the driver of that vehicle is being held on an unrelated matter.

Patty Hammons, who said her nephew is one of the victims, said she heard numerous gunshots, and it took a while before she came out of her house.

She said when she got to the scene, her nephew was on a stretcher and told her he had been shot in the hip.

Police pushed a crowd of people back as they searched for clues along Park Avenue.

Shawn Thomas heard the shots and said it sounded like a machine gun to him.

“It’s very sad,” said Aisha Johnson. She lives in the area and said people can get shot just minding their own business.
