City of Pittsburgh Police still have no suspects in this past weekend’s four shooting incidents that left three Black males, all of whom were under the age of 30, injured and many in the community shook up.
“Unfortunately we do not have suspects in these shootings as the victims were unable to provide any description or detail,” said Sonya Toler, public information officer for the City of Pittsburgh Public Safety Department.
The violent weekend began the evening of Nov. 8 near the intersection of North Charles and Farris Streets on the North Side. A 26-year-old was shot in the hip while talking to two other men. According to the reports, the three men were conversing when a dark colored SUV drove past, followed by a silver sedan and opened fire on the small group. The 26-year-old ran and later collapsed. He was taken to Allegheny General Hospital in critical condition.
Next, in the early hours of Nov. 9 near the West End Bridge, two Black males, ages 20 and 25, and both of the Northview Heights area, were hit by gunshots as they drove from the South Side. One of the victims was dropped off at Allegheny General Hospital with wounds to the back and leg. The other was shot in the hand. They are both in stable condition.
