Police Investigate Apparent Shooting In McKeesport

PITTSBURGH (KDKA)--McKeesport police are investigating after reports of gunfire outside a bar early Wednesday.

An eyewitness who lives near the bar says he heard as many as nine gunshots and saw who he described as the shooter get in a car and take off.

The sign outside The Roo Bar and Grill on O'Neil Boulevard in McKeesport says "hop on in for a Roo good time". But that good time apparently ended abruptly last night just before closing time.

Through emails, an eyewitness told KDKA the glass front door of the bar was shot out and several cars in the parking lot were hit with stray bullets.

The witness says someone was taken to McKeesport Hospital with a gunshot wound, but police have not confirmed that.  In fact, KDKA TV placed several calls to McKeesport Police Chief Adam Alfer, but he's yet to return our calls.
