PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - One person was killed and three others were injured after gunfire rang out on Pittsburgh's North Side late on Sunday night.
Police responded to the scene along Brighton Place around 9:45 p.m. after receiving multiple Shotspotter alerts for several rounds fired.
"It was a pretty chaotic scene," said Pittsburgh police crimes Commander Richard Ford. "There was a wrecked vehicle, multiple shell casings on the street, people scrambling."
First responders immediately found three men with gunshot wounds. They were taken to the hospital. They said one man, identified as 40-year-old Stephone Drayton, was shot in the chest and died at the hospital.
Police said another man was in serious condition after being shot in the knee, while another man was in stable condition after being shot in the foot.
According to police, the fourth victim was grazed in the arm, but he refused to go to the hospital with medics.
"I heard at least 20 gunshots, shot up out of bed and saw flashlights," said North Side resident Sereny Welsby. "I knew it was gunshots right away. It scared the daylights out of us."
On Monday morning, she said she was still frightened.
"I've lived on the North Side for years, and I never heard anything like that," said Welsby.
As for any suspects, no information has been provided by police.
"It's just so unnecessary," Welsby said. "We have a real problem with guns in this country but this is just so close to home. It's really scaring my family and I."
Welsby said she's now searching for a new house to protect her family.
"It just seems like it's happening more and more often and closer and closer to me," said Welsby. "I have a young son who lives with me so I'm going to start looking in the suburb."
