MCKEESPORT (KDKA) — Police are looking for a man who fired shots at police in McKeesport.

The situation started when police responded to a burglary call at a house at 3310 Stewart Street.

When police arrived, officers found much more. Police say as they approached the home, a woman who lives at the house ran out the door.

As she did, police say a black male inside the house fired a shot, hitting the woman in the forearm.

Police officers returned fire at the suspect. The woman ran to a neighbor’s house bleeding.

Police called for backup and while they were doing that, the suspects made a run for it.

Police say they tracked the suspects for about four and a half blocks with dogs before losing the trail.

They spent the rest of the afternoon searching the scene for evidence.

The suspects were described as black males wearing dew rags.
