PITTSBURGH - A shooting in East Hills prompted a police chase that ended in a crash in Homewood early Tuesday morning.
Investigators said the shooting happened around 1:40 a.m. on East Hills Drive.
Channel 11 News has learned that the incident began when an off-duty officer heard gun shots fired into a crowd.
When police arrived, officials said the driver of a black Grand Cherokee sped away, prompting a chase.
Investigators said the driver, Aaron Bailey, reached speeds of up to 60 mph through a residential area of Homewood.
Officers said Bailey lost control of the car and crashed into a utility pole on Bennett Street.
The 20-year-old driver and passenger, Bijanie Davis, were treated at a nearby hospital and later arrested.
Investigators said they found bullets and drugs in the car.
“There was a good bit of marijuana found both inside the Jeep and at the hospital. The passenger was to have hidden a small amount of marijuana inside her body,” Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Sonya Toler said.
Baily and Davis remain in the Allegheny County Jail on multiple charges.
