Police investigate drive-by shooting in Braddock; man grazed by bullets


Police are investigating a drive-by shooting Friday night in Braddock that may have injured at least one man, officials said.

About 7:15 p.m., Braddock police and paramedics received a report of shots fired near Corey Avenue and Mills Street.

First responders arrived to find an abandoned Chevrolet sedan.

Its driver’s side was riddled with bullet holes. Nobody was in the car.

Police then learned that a man with gunshot wounds had been seen at Edgewood Towne Center, which straddles the neighboring boroughs of Edgewood and Swissvale.

Before they got to the shopping plaza, a man arrived at a nearby hospital via a private vehicle with non-life-threatening, grazing gunshot wounds on the left side of his body, police said.

Investigators did not say whether the injured man may have been a target of the shooting.

Officials did not release further details nor descriptions of potential suspects.

Allegheny County police homicide detectives are investigating.

Police asked anyone with information to call 833-255-8477 (833-ALL-TIPS). Callers can remain anonymous.

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.
