PITTSBURGH – – The search continues for a person who shot two people near a busy grocery store.
“You could hear boom, boom, boom,” said Diane Kennedy, who was inside the Giant Eagle when it happened.
On the outside, grocery carts, shattered glass and dozens of evidence markers were seen after the shootout.
“It appears the gun exchange occurred outside the supermarket, there were two vehicles hit and appears we are very fortunate no other individuals were struck by bullets,” Director of Public Safety Wendell Hissrich said.
Witnesses told Channel 11 it was chaos.
“People were running that way, this way, ran into the Giant Eagle to get away from the gunfire, jumping in their cars. It was just chaos,” Beth Blair said.
Hissrich said a man and a woman were shot in the parking lot.
Witnesses said one of them fired back, then the man and woman both ran into the grocery store.
For two hours, Kennedy and the other shoppers were told not to leave since the store was on lockdown.
“Everyone was hysterical cause they did not know was out of the store so we all had to stay in one place and wait and wait,” Kennedy said.
