“We’re looking towards Circle K and there were three people running,” added Curincak.
Police investigations in the K County parking lot focused on a white car in which several coffee cups appeared to mark bullet casings on the floor. There was a bullet hole in the back of the car and its rear tire had blown out.
Investigators cordoned off a large area around the gas station as they gathered evidence. Police also collected evidence in an alley near the gas station.
Neighbors told KDKA’s Erika Stanish they heard about a dozen gunshots.
There was no word on the victims’ conditions or the motive behind the shooting.
