A 14-year-old boy is recovering after police said he was shot inside his Marshall-Shadeland home Wednesday night. It was one of three shootings in the area in a three-hour span.
Investigators said the teen was hurt when a bullet was fired through a window of a home on Frederick Street about 7:30 p.m.
The victim was taken to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh where he is listed in stable condition, reported Channel 11's Lori Houy.
Detectives said they found shell casings on a nearby street. So far, the victim's name has not been released.
Investigators said the boy was not the intended target. They believe the bullet was meant for his brother.
Cmdr. RaShall Brackney said the boy's shooting was one of three shootings in the area within three hours Wednesday night. Brackney said all of the shootings are connected.
“The 14-year-old who was sitting in front of his desk in front of the computer was not the person initially targeted. It might have been for his older brother,” Brackney said.
Residents said shootings have become a common occurrence in the area.
"This whole neighborhood is like a war zone," said neighbor Ronnie Hein. “Kids around here just need to relax. It’s horrible.”
So far, no arrests have been made in any of the shootings.
“We hear gun shots all the time and don’t anything of it,” neighbor Rose Hardy said.
Anyone with information on the shootings is asked to contact police.
