We spoke with people who said they didn’t know what was going on, until they saw the fight and blood all over the store.

Alexis Keppel and Yssence Andino were there doing their grocery shopping.

“It was one person getting beat up by three or four other people. A tall guy just getting beat up by kids, adults, men, women, everyone,” explained Keppel. “The woman that was involved the one that ganged up on the guy, she ended up getting hit and I think she broke her nose. Because when we went to the self-checkout, she was absolutely covered in blood.”

A week ago, a 15-year-old was charged in a triple shooting around 18th and Carson. Since then, Pittsburgh police announced they’ll be closing down part of the inbound lane of East Carson Street starting Friday at 7 p.m.

Several side streets will be blocked off. Uber and Lyft will be limited on where they can go.

“A lot of the violence is a lot of drunk people, but it’s South Side, there are bars and restaurants, people aren’t going to stop coming here. They will find a way even if you can’t park,” explained Keppel.
