WEST MIFFLIN (KDKA) — A hail of gunfire riddled a West Mifflin home with more than 20 bullet holes early Friday morning.
A woman who was inside the home on Glencairn Street says someone knocked on the door sometime before 3 a.m. When no one answered, she says multiple people opened fire.
The homeowner, Eric Chedwick, says he was sleeping on the living room couch when the shooting started.
“Stuff was just flying at us everywhere,” Chedwick said. “I tried to jump up and then there were a couple more shots that came in. So, I hit the ground and I started yelling, ‘Everybody down! Everybody down!'”
Chedwick said his wife and their daughter’s 3-month-old baby were sleeping in a bedroom. The daughter and her boyfriend were in their own bedroom.
Chedwick said at least one bullet came within a foot of hitting the newborn.
“I was just worried about my family, and the baby being in the bedroom,” he said.
No one was injured, and the gunmen made a quick getaway.
“I did hear a car leaving, but we didn’t get a description,” Chedwick said.
Chedwick has no idea why his family was targeted, but he has a strong message for the suspects.
“I tell you what, when I find out…You’re going to jail, and if I have anything to do with it, you’re going forever. That’s all I can say,” he said.
West Mifflin Police are investigating.
