AMBRIDGE (KDKA) — A car and a building were riddled with bullets after gunshots rang out in a Beaver County community.

Police are now trying to figure out who pulled the trigger.

The late-night quiet in Ambridge was shattered early Tuesday morning when police say at least 18 shots were fired inside Economy Village.

“We received a call about 2:30 a.m., multiple calls really, about shots fired in the area of 37 Economy Village,” said Chief Jim Mann, of Ambridge Police.

When police arrived they found a vacant apartment that had been hit with gunfire from a .40-caliber semi-automatic weapon. A pickup truck parked on the street was nearby.

“From talking to witnesses, they determined there were two shooters, possibly a white male, and found a 2010 Chevy S10 that had gunshots, bullet holes in the vehicle,” said Chief Mann.

People who live in the area heard the gunshots, but there was a fear Tuesday of talking about it on camera. Even though no one was hit, this time police are fearful of what so much gunfire in the middle of the night means.

“We don’t think this is the end of it,” Chief Mann said. “And we just hope innocent people and police officers don’t get mixed up in the middle of the dispute.”
