Neighbor Dispute Ends in Shots Fired, Dog Killed

Date: March 28, 2021
Incident Type: Shots fired
Location: Zone 6
Summary:

A Pittsburgh Police officer from Zone 6 walking a beat in Sheraden responded to the sound of gunshots in the area of Ashlyn Street and Bergman Street around 3:45 p.m.

The officer located two males who had been involved in some type of neighbor dispute or argument that escalated into shots fired. One of the males fired twice at the other male's dog, killing it.

Initial reports suggested the owner of the dog had also been struck by a bullet, but this was not correct. There were no other serious injuries and no one was transported to the hospital.

One male was arrested at the scene. Charges are pending.
