MANCHESTER (KDKA) — One woman was killed and another was injured in a shooting in Pittsburgh’s Manchester neighborhood early Sunday morning.
Officers were sent to the 1100-block of Liverpool Street just after 4 a.m. for a report of gunshots in the area.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found two victims. A 27-year-old woman had been shot in the leg and was transported to a local hospital.
The other victim had been shot multiple times and was pronounced dead at the scene. The Allegheny County medical examiner’s office has identified the victim as 30-year-old Mia Chantia White, of Bellevue.
According to friends, White and a group had been out celebrating a birthday. They returned to the home of one friend in Manchester, then left again to grab something to eat. As they sat in the car, the shots rang out.
“How do you make sense of something that doesn’t make sense? But still I faith. We have to trust that God is perfect,” said Miracle Reed, one of White’s friends.
White’s friends are remembering her as a great mom, a hard worker and as someone who was very active in her church community.
Police say the 27-year-old victim has since been released from the hospital.
