Valley News Dispatch | By Chuck Biedka
Gunfire ripped into a parked SUV and the side of a house along the 1200 block of Constitution Boulevard just after 11 p.m. Thursday.
Two people were inside, but neither was hurt.
Someone fired at least seven rounds -- three struck the SUV and four hit the house, Detective Sgt. Dino DiGiacobbe said.
"I heard it and heard something hitting the house," said James Wright, who lives in the house with his fiancee. "Fortunately the kids weren't here."
Wright said he heard a commotion in the alley before the gunfire.
"Maybe it had something to do with that," Wright said. "Neither me or her have enemies."
Police removed bullets that hit the aluminum-sided house and questioned neighbors, the detective said. Casings weren't found.
They also took Wright's black Dodge Durango to gather evidence.
"It's another couple days of inconvenience," said Wright, who said he has lived in the house about a year.
Police are checking to see if the incident is connected to an incident several weeks ago along the 1200 block of Kenneth Avenue, DiGiacobbe said.
In that incident, at least three people fired guns. Each used a different caliber of handgun, police said.
"We need anyone with information to come forward and call us," DiGiacobbe said. "The call can be made anonymously."
The house, near the corner of Constitution Boulevard at Catalpa Street, has previously been hit by gunfire.
"That was in there before we moved in," Wright said, pointing to a bullet hole in the front of the house.
Anyone with information is asked to New Kensington Police at 724-339-7533. Callers may remain anonymous.
