    Officers said they initially believed that vehicle was connected to the gunfire, and pursued the driver. That chase lasted less than a mile when the driver ditched his car and took off on foot around 2:00 Tuesday afternoon.

    Pittsburgh and County Sheriff K9's were brought in to track that person near the Hays Manor Housing Complex.

    People there told Channel 11's Gordon Loesch did not want to go outside until they knew it was safe.

    Back on West Carson Street, police said they found a bullet casing during a search for evidence. But they could not determine what that bullet might have hit.

    Police said they are still searching for the shooter.
