Pittsburgh police are looking for suspects who shot at officers on Feb. 8, 2019 in Pittsburgh’s West End.

Pittsburgh police are seeking suspects who shot at two officers late Friday night in the West End.

No officers were hit, according to a Pittsburgh police Facebook post, and police did not fire any shots.

Officers stopped a car with several people at about 11:30 p.m. on Broadhead Fording Road. According to police, two people got out, fired at the officers and fled.

Officers chased them while others remaining in the vehicle drove away.

The incident happened near Prospect Avenue and a SWAT perimeter was set up at a home in the 400 block of the road when officers believed suspects were inside. No suspects were found.

SWAT was then directed to a home in the 1500 block of Clarkton Street where the vehicle involved in the incident was located. Multiple suspects were found inside and questioned but no arrests were made.
