2 cars shot up, no one hurt overnight in Pittsburgh

A couple escaped a drive-by shooting Sunday that left their Jeep riddled with bullet holes, police said.

The couple told Pittsburgh police a dark gray or silver GMC SUV pulled along side their white Jeep Compass at about 10:54 p.m. and opened fire as they turned onto Industrial Highway near Mazette and Beechnut roads in Fairywood.

The Jeep had eight bullet holes and damage to the driver side where it sideswiped a guardrail on Industrial Highway, but the occupants were uninjured.

The couple, a man from the West End and a woman from the North Side, both 25, told police they could not see the people inside the GMC.

Less than two hours later, police went to the 3700 block of Chartiers Avenue for a report of shots fired. They found a white Nissan Altima with five bullet holes. The car was parked and unoccupied. No one was injured. The car’s owner did not see who shot it.

Police are investigating the shootings as separate incidents and do not believe they are related, police spokeswoman Sonya Toler said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
