SWISSVALE, Pa. — Swissvale and Allegheny County Police are investigating after six people were shot at a Swissvale home Friday night.

The suspect is under police supervision.

According to officers, there was an exchange of gunfire between one of the victims and the suspect.

“It’s terrifying,” said neighbor Shawn Alfonso Wells. “You would hope that nobody loses a family member right now. That would be horrible.”

Alfonso Wells is shocked this violent outburst happened in her neighborhood.

“Everybody’s really concerned because we really don’t have shootings in this part of the neighborhood,” she said.
