“There was no exchange of words,” said Pittsburgh Police Commander RaShall Brackeny. “There was no argument that preceded the shooting, there was no confrontation that preceded the shooting as well.”
Investigators hope surveillance video from nearby schools, Westinghouse and neighbors’ surveillance cameras can give them a better look at the suspects’ vehicle.
KDKA’s Heather Abraham Reports:
Neighbors say this a violent trend that needs to end.
“It’s just tragic,” said neighbor William Anderson. “It’s sad what’s happened to our community. We’re basically committing genocide among ourselves, all this violence, there’s too many innocent victims.”
The shooting took place in the vicinity of the home of a high-ranking Pittsburgh Police officer. However, they are not believed to be the target of the violence.
“There is no evidence that police officers or a particular officer has or is being targeted in this incident,” said Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Chief Cameron S. McLay.
“It’s unfortunate, and because it was a police officer’s porch, how much more dangerous do we think that these young guys are that they would do that,” the mother of one of the victims said.
