2 bystanders shot after being caught in gun battle crossfire
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Authorities in western Pennsylvania say two bystanders were injured by gunshots when they were caught in the crossfire of a Pittsburgh gun battle.
Police say people in at least two vehicles exchanged gunfire at an intersection in the Greenfield neighborhood shortly after 4 p.m. Saturday.
Police say the shots continued as the vehicles “became mobile,” apparently traveling along the avenue. City spokesman Chris Togneri said two people were then caught in the crossfire.
A woman shot in the arm was treated at a hospital and released. A man shot in the hand remained hospitalized in stable condition. No arrests were immediately reported.
On Friday in the same neighborhood, two people were shot outside a grocery store. A suspect is being sought. It’s unclear whether the two shootings are related.
