DEVELOPING STORY: A gunman reportedly fired hundreds of rounds in Pittsburgh while police were serving an eviction notice. There’s no word on the number of injuries – but at least one member of law enforcement was hurt. They are calling it an “extremely active shooter” situation.
“I’ve never heard bullets like this,” a neighbor near the scene told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Something you’d see in a movie.”
Fox News reports that deputies literally ran out of ammo. WPXI-TV is reporting the gunman has shot down two drones that were monitoring the scene.
Chris Wilkinson, who is visiting family in the area, told CBS: “In the beginning, all we heard was the cops. They were banging on the door where the shooting takes place.”
“They were banging on it telling him they were there. And after a couple of minutes of them doing it, they started to kick down the door, but after a few tries they couldn’t do it.
‘Then, they got a sledgehammer and took down the door, and after that shots started to be fired. I’ve been really nervous and it’s really sad what’s happening,” he said. “You think you can be safe here but you can’t with what’s happening.”
