Bullets flew along a city block in a Duquesne neighborhood on Saturday afternoon, injuring one and at least three people with property damage. Allegheny County Police say shots were fired just after 3:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon along the 200 block of Harden Avenue in Duquesne. “I was laying on the couch, I thought it was fireworks,” said Brian Krasman, who lives along Harden Avenue. “It was really close so I looked out the window and just saw a guy holding a gun – there was screaming so I didn’t know if it was going on or what.” Neighbors told Action News 4 in Pittsburgh that they heard anywhere between eight and ten gunshots. A neighbor, who wished to remain anonymous, said they went out for a flat tire on their car. “I was upstairs on my computer, heard about eight gunshots, running down the stairs, saw a young man running down the street,” the neighbor said. “My neighbor was already out, there was a bullet that went through a window in the other (and the) tire of my truck was flattened.” Allegheny County police say first responders found a man with a gunshot wound to his leg, he was taken to hospital and is expected to be fine. “We’ve lived for over 30 years and never had any problems in this neighborhood. I feel really violated by this and hope the police can do something to stem the violence here,” a neighbor told Pittsburgh Action News 4.
