SWISSVALE (KDKA) – Police are looking for a suspect after two people were injured in a shooting in Swissvale Wednesday night.
According to police, the incident happened around 11 p.m. in the area of the Roslyn Busway parking area.
A 38-year-old man was found with a gunshot wound to the leg near the intersection of Dickson Street and South Braddock Avenue.
While police were with that man, they learned a 30-year-old man was found shot in the chest in Rankin.
Allegheny County Police detectives think the two victims were near the Roslyn Busway parking area when someone got out of a vehicle and opened fire.
Police believe the 30-year-old was the intended target, but it’s unclear what the motive was at this time.
John Faupel has lived on Dickson Street for 35 years. He was surprised to hear that a shooting took place so close to home.
“It really doesn’t happen too much in Swissvale,” he said. “This is an isolated incident for this town. It’s not a common thing.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
