MONESSEN, Pa. - Police said a fight between two brothers led police to a drug discovery in Monessen Thursday.
According to police, Gregg Tchirkow was shot near a home on Fifth Street around 3:30 a.m.
“There was a man shot in the hand. Shortly after, another man arrived with a shoulder injury,” said Monessen Police Chief John Mandarino.
