SWAT Called After Carrick Shooting

CARRICK (KDKA) — A shooting on Brownsville Road escalated into a SWAT situation Sunday afternoon.

Around noon, officers were called to the intersection of Brownsville Road and Wynoka Street in front of the Shop ‘n Save.

A man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds was found and taken to UPMC Mercy in serious but stable condition.

According to Pittsburgh public safety spokeswoman Sonya Toler, SWAT teams were called to the scene because police believed the shooter may have been in a building in the 1100 block of Brownsville Road.

The scene of the shooting was found to be in the first-floor hallway of that home. A maroon vehicle parked outside of the residence was found to have multiple bullet holes.

Despite a thorough search, the suspect was not found.

“We have not found the shooter, we did safely evacuate a female and a male with two children. We also found a handgun and a long gun inside the residence,” Pittsburgh Police Spokesperson Sonya Toler said.

The scene was deemed safe at approximately 2:02 p.m. and the area was reopened by 2:45 p.m.

“Sunday, Mother’s Day, first thing in the morning, you’ve got nonsense. When is it going to stop? I fear for everybody, I do,” neighbor Melissa Esplem said.
