    An employee told Channel 11 News no one was hurt.

    People in the area said what happened was an act of desperation.

    “They think because it’s a place of seniors and, particularly where it’s located, they probably thought it could be an easy take, and shame on them,” Gene Sheck, of Pittsburgh, said.
