    An hour after Pittsburgh's fireworks show, downtown was turned into chaos when two teenagers were shot during a fight among a large group of juveniles. A relatively new police substation sits a tenth of a mile from where the shooting happened. Two teens were shot during the incident, one 16-years-old and one 18-years-old.

    According to the criminal complaint, two opposing groups were fighting over previously released rap videos in which one group would slander the other.

    One of those fights, according to police, took place inside Point State Park near the end of the fireworks display.

    The two groups then separated, but they ran into each other at Katz Plaza, where shots were fired.

    Police said Caldwell should be considered armed and dangerous. He is described by police as being 5' 3" tall with a stocky build, and police said he is known to frequent the North Side and Arlington areas.

    Anyone with information on Caldwell’s whereabouts is asked to call the Violent Crimes Unit at (412) 323-7161.
