PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Police are investigating two overnight shootings in Mt. Oliver and Knoxville.
People who live in the neighborhood said they are tired of the violence and it seems to be getting worse.
“I’m afraid for my own safety living here,” a woman said.
She lives in Mt. Oliver, near where the shooting happened in the 300-block of School Way just before 9 p.m. Wednesday. It happened right near Family Dollar.
“Back in the day 31 years ago when I lived here, you didn’t have to lock your doors and windows and now it’s gotten so violent that it’s scary to even live here,” she said.
Police said a man was shot in the stomach. When police got to the scene, he was conscious and alert, but he was bleeding from a gunshot wound.
He was last listed in critical condition at the hospital, but is expected to survive.
Police are keeping their eye out for three younger men last seen in a white Plymouth Acclaim.
Police are calling the three suspects armed and dangerous.
“Our police force try, but they can’t be everywhere at the same time. I don’t know. They need to get control of the drugs and guns and let people be able to live quietly in peace in their own neighborhood,” she said.
Around 2 a.m. Thursday, police say shots were fired at a home in the 100-block of Zara Street in Knoxville. This location was just a few blocks away from the first shooting.
Police aren’t sure if they’re connected, but they do know someone fired six shots at the house, targeting a 20-year-old that lives there.
No one was downstairs where the bullets struck the home, but there were two small kids upstairs. No one was injured.
If you have any idea who these suspects are or where they could be, you’re being asked to call Allegheny County Police.
