PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - A man is dead, and three others are injured after Pittsburgh police said someone opened fire near the 703 Social Club off Brighton Road early Saturday morning. It's left a Marshall-Shadeland community on edge.

More than 20 shots are what a woman who doesn't want to be identified for her safety heard early from the home she's lived in her whole life. She was sitting, talking to her dad and watching TV.

"The next thing, we heard sirens like two minutes later," the woman said.

With that, she heard people yelling and panicking as she saw the flashing lights of police cars surround the neighborhood.

"I heard a couple of people maybe say, 'Let's go! It's time to go!'" the woman said.

She decided to walk the dog and see what was happening. Then, she ran into the yellow and red crime tape.

It was just after 2 a.m. when police said they got called to respond to a report of shots fired and multiple people hit by Brighton and Schimmer.

When officers arrived near the 703 Social Club, they learned there was a dispute and found two males in critical condition.

Medics transported them to the hospital, where 40-year-old Warren Thompson died from his injuries. They later found out two others struck and went to the hospital on their own in stable condition.

The circumstances behind the shooting remain unclear, including whether it happened inside or outside the business.

KDKA-TV cameras watched as a tow truck took a car away that investigators said was involved.

Also, a man who lives in the area told KDKA-TV that the bar used to get an older crowd under different ownership, but when that changed about five years ago, it got younger and noisier after hours.

"When I was little, my mom and dad didn't have to worry about me being out, and you know, we just had to be in when the streetlights came on," the woman said. "Now, I try my best to just make sure my kids don't even go outside."

As for the female witness, she wonders what happened to talking things out.

"I ask myself that all the time. What happened to how it used to be," the woman said. "Don't be shooting nobody because especially you don't know where that bullet's going to really land."

KDKA-TV reached out to the business for comment but has not heard back at this time. 

No word on any suspects.

If you have any information about what happened, you're asked to call Pittsburgh police at 412-323-7201.
