Home, several cars struck by bullets in Windgap shootout



PITTSBURGH - A home and several cars were struck by bullets Thursday morning during what police are calling a “shootout” in Pittsburgh’s Windgap neighborhood.

Investigators said three people were arrested and will face charges in the shooting. One person, officials said, remains on the run.

According to police, the shooting began when gunshots were fired at a home on Summerdale Street, and then people inside the home fired back.

No injuries were reported, but a few cars and homes were hit.

When police got to the home, they arrested Jaraya Porter, Geron Anderson and Deonta Rhinehart for allegedly having stolen guns and drugs.

Channel 11 News has learned that police found a silver Hyundai in a driveway that they were looking for in connection to a shooting in Crafton Heights last Thursday.

“What’s going through my head is moving -- actually selling my house and moving,” upset resident Adrian Boyd said.

Residents of the normally quiet neighborhood told Channel 11’s Jennifer Tomazic that they’re upset about the recent rash of violence.

“I’m more mad than sad because our kids don’t have anywhere to go,” Boyd said.

Councilwoman Theresa Kail-Smith said she’s working with Chartiers City neighbors to form a block watch. She also said she hopes an increase in police presence in the area will deter crime.
