PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Police are searching for a female suspect following a shooting late Thursday night in the Beechview-Brookline neighborhoods.
According to police, officers found the victims near West Liberty Avenue and Saranac Street around 11:30 p.m.
One man was shot in the arm. The other had injuries to his face.
“I did hear two loud bangs, which I just brushed off as a breaker burst or something with a power line. But then I saw red and blue flashing lights,” a neighbor told KDKA. “I didn’t realize that someone got shot.”
The victims told police they’d met the shooter downtown, where she agreed to get in their car and go with them “to party.”
But while in the car, police say something went wrong. There was a confrontation and the woman pulled out a gun and began firing.
“I came home from the Pirate game last night, drove down the street, saw that the street was blocked off,” another neighbor said. “There were police cars on either end, blocking it off. Saw an ambulance show up.”
Both men were taken to a hospital in stable condition.
While processing the scene, investigators found bullet casings on the street. The back driver’s side window of a car was also shot out.
Police say the case is still under investigation.
