Police find two crimes on same Pittsburgh street, hours apart

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh police officers were out on the same street in the West End for two separate incidents on Tuesday.

Detectives showed up to Stafford Street after ShotSpotter sent multiple alerts for gunfire.

Neighbors tell Channel 11, they heard 15 to 20 gunshots. One man said he saw seven shell casings across the street from his home.

No one was hurt in the shooting, according to police.

A few hours earlier, someone dialed 911 after finding a woman dead in the home on the same street.

At this point, it is unclear how the woman died and if the two incidents are somehow related.
