PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Paramedics responding to a woman hit by a car had to take cover when shots rang out from a nearby Father’s Day cookout in Pittsburgh.
Police say at least one man was wounded, shot in the thigh Sunday about 9:30 p.m.
Police spokeswoman Sonya Toler says paramedics weren’t hurt, but were nearby when the shooting broke out in a park. Witnesses say hundreds were gathered for the annual event when two groups of men began arguing and shots were fired.
Police are hoping witnesses will help them find whoever fired the shots.
The one confirmed victim was in stable condition at Allegheny General Hospital.
Pittsburgh police seeking suspects in pizza carjacking
PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Pittsburgh police are looking for at least two suspects who shot a pizza delivery driver then stole his car.
Police say the incident happened about 10:15 p.m. Sunday in Oakland, near the University of Pittsburgh campus.
Police say the driver was not badly injured in the shooting and that they found his car abandoned a short distance from the shooting. Police say it appears the suspects bailed out of the vehicle and ran away.
Adult’ status, other issues set in school stabbing hearing
PITTSBURGH (AP) _ A major pretrial hearing is scheduled in the case of a 17-year-old boy charged as an adult with stabbing 20 fellow students and a security guard at his suburban Pittsburgh high school last year.
Monday’s hearing for Alex Hribal (RY’-bal), of Murrysville, may determine whether the former Franklin Regional High School student will remain on track to be tried as an adult next month in the April 2014 stabbing rampage.
That’s crucial for Hribal, because if the case is moved to juvenile court, the suspect _ who turns 18 in October _ would face incarceration or court supervision only until he’s 21. Westmoreland County prosecutors, by contrast, want Hribal to face trial as an adult, which means he’ll face decades in prison if convicted.
Other issues, including Hribal’s mental status, will also be reviewed Monday.
