BEAVER FALLS, Pa. (KDKA) — A neighborhood street turned into a crime scene while many were sleeping on Sunday night.
Three people were shot in Beaver Falls after police say gunfire rang out in the area of 14th Street and Fifth Avenue around 11:45 p.m.
Neighbors KDKA talked to were shocked because they say violence doesn’t usually happen.
“I raised three kids here, they went to school here, they walked to school,” says Beaver Falls native Rick Crawford.

Beaver Falls police say two of the victims were found in separate locations, and the other victim was taken to the hospital by a private vehicle. A 23-year-old man is in critical but stable condition and a 20-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman are in stable condition.
Investigators processed the scene for hours. Numerous evidence markers were on the ground and streets were blocked off.
“It’s just not the common thing for us to experience here in this little community. But, it’s happened in the past,” says Crawford.
At this time, no one has been arrested and a description of a shooter has not been released.
“I was kinda surprised to see that happen, but again, there’s some elements in our community that are seedy and there are other elements in other communities that are the same way,” says Crawford.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the Beaver Falls Police Department.
