Woman, man shot in McKees Rocks

A woman and a man were shot in McKees Rocks Thursday morning.

Police and EMS responded to reports of a shooting in the 100 block of Irwin Street just after 6 a.m., according to Allegheny County police.

They found a woman with multiple gunshot wounds. In addition, a man walked into an area hospital with a gunshot wound to the stomach. Both victims are in stable condition.

Neighbors who didn’t want to be identified told Channel 11 they weren’t surprised to see the crime scene tape.

“I come out on my porch and hear gunshots…it’s the norm,” one neighbor said. “There’s been the shooting that was in Stowe Township the other day, there have been two murders in the area close to here – not even five minutes away – within the last year and a half.”

Another neighbor, who also didn’t want to be identified, told Channel 11 she believes a lot of the recent crime in McKees Rocks stems from drug activity.

“There needs to be more units patrolling the area, keeping an eye on things because sadly, this is becoming more and more of an everyday occurrence,” she said.

Homicide detectives are investigating. Anyone with information concerning this incident is asked to call the County Police Tip Line 1-833-ALL-TIPS. Callers can remain anonymous.
