Greensburg police investigate 11 gunshots fired at car
Greensburg police are looking for two suspects who fired multiple gunshots early Wednesday into a parked vehicle and a home on Grove Street.
Police Chief Wally Lyons said officers were summoned to the corner of Grove and Washington streets at 3:08 a.m. to investigate a complaint of gunshots.
“We received numerous telephone calls from the neighborhood about numerous gunshots being fired. We’re fortunate no one was injured,” Lyons said.
Police said when officers arrived they discovered a brown Chevy Cruze parked on Grove Street that had nine bullet holes in it. A nearby residence was damaged by a bullet.
“We recovered 11, 9 mm shells and .45-caliber shell casings from the scene that were fired,” Lyons said. “We have reports of two males wearing hoodies who fled on foot west on Grove.”
Lyons said investigators determined that the car was driven by a 20-year-old McKeesport man who was staying at a nearby residence with his girlfriend. The vehicle is owned by that man’s father, police said.
Neither the man nor his 18-year-old girlfriend was injured.
“We searched the area to no avail, but we are continuing our investigation and following a few leads we have received,” Lyons said.
Police also are investigating a motive.
