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.
Tonight, the City-County Building is illuminated to recognize Poison Prevention Week and the 50th Anniversary of "Mr. Yuk" in partnership with Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
