Neighbors Concerned After Garfield Double Shooting
GARFIELD (KDKA) – Police are investigating after two people were injured in a Sunday night shooting in Garfield.
Homicide detectives are still gathering details on exactly what happened in the 400-block of North Fairmount Street around 8 p.m.
Police have not released many details, but it is believed two people were shot, apparently there was a fight and the people involved in the shooting took off.
A 41-year-old man was shot in the abdomen and hand and a 34-year-old man suffered a chest wound.
“I guess someone came up and shot up while they were outside. I don’t know who or why. I don’t know if they were targeting one of them. I have no idea,” Pastor Chad Collins said.
Neighbors said they heard seven to 10 shots. One of the victims was lying in the street, but somehow they both managed to take themselves to the hospital.
Pastor Collins is concerned about the ongoing violence in the neighborhood. He recently placed a sign in his yard that reads: Stop Shooting, We Love You.
“He was about to be married Saturday. I’m praying that’s something will allow him to recover and that he continues to celebrate life as opposed to these death realities,” Pastor Collins said.
The victims’ names have not been released at this time and police are still looking for suspects.
Anyone with information is asked to call Pittsburgh Police.
