Police said two 15-year-olds and an adult man were injured during the shooting reported around 11 p.m. at Kennywood Park in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania. The victims were treated at hospitals and expected to recover, KDKA-TV reported.

Authorities said an argument between two groups of teenagers prompted the shooting by a suspect described as a male wearing a mask and black hoodie, KDKA-TV reported.

Kennywood had functioning metal detectors and security personnel were on duty, police said, leaving the unanswered question of how a gun entered the park.

Police are investigating using the park’s security cameras and witness statements, KDKA-TV reported.

Large drug bust in Wilkinsburg leads to 1 arrest; police still searching for another suspect – WPXI

WILKINSBURG, Pa. — A massive drug bust in Wilkinsburg led to felony charges against two people.

In June 2022, Wilkinsburg and Penn Hills detectives and narcotics agents with the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office launched an investigation into 57-year-old Douglas Curry.

That same month, police said Curry was stopped and detained in a traffic stop in Wilkinsburg. Police said Curry was in possession of crack cocaine.

“2,000 stamp bags of fentanyl is a large quantity for anyone to possess. It just takes a small dose of fentanyl for someone to overdose — that’s $20,000 worth of fentanyl. That saved many lives getting that off the street today,” said Wilkinsburg Detective Sgt. Doug Yuhouse.
