MUNHALL, Pa. (KDKA) — A 19-year-old woman was killed and three other teenagers were wounded in an apparent drive-by shooting early Friday morning in Munhall.
Police were called to the 1300 block of Margaret Street around 2:15 a.m. for a report of a shooting in the area.
When they arrived, they found four people suffering from gunshot wounds inside a vehicle.
“A 19-year-old female was pronounced dead at the scene,” said Allegheny County Police Lt. Andrew Schurman. “Three other people were taken to local trauma hospitals suffering from a variety of gunshot wounds, two of those were 17-year-old males and the third was an 18-year old female.”
The Allegheny County medical examiner’s office has identified the victim as Jazmere Brianna Custis, of Homestead.
An 18-year-old female suffered a gunshot wound to the chest. One 17-year-old male suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his body and another 17-year-old male suffered a gunshot wound to the leg.
All three were transported to a local hospital and were last listed in stable condition.
#BREAKING: A neighbor just let me go through his security footage because his camera points directly towards Margaret Street in #Munhall. We spotted a car fly down the street and then a police car pulled up shortly after. The car targeted in the fatal driveby is off camera @KDKA pic.twitter.com/XK1afvV7rg

Police believe the victims’ vehicle stopped to let one of the occupants get out when another vehicle pulled up and opened fire.
A security camera caught a vehicle speeding away before police arrived. Police haven’t confirmed if that’s the vehicle they are looking for.
Some neighbors say they heard the gunshots. Lamont Ford, who lost his son in a police-involved shooting, lives a few doors away.
“We need to stop killing each other. The protest for us to have the police to stop killing our youth is, we’ve got to stop killing each other as well,” he said.
Right now, police have no suspects or descriptions, and no motive given for the shooting.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the Allegheny County Police Tip Line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS (1-833-255-8477). Callers can remain anonymous.
