Duquesne and Allegheny County police are looking for three men involved in a shooting Saturday evening on Priscilla Street that injured four people.
Police said three of the victims were sitting on the front porch of a house in the 600 block at around 5 p.m. when a blue Ford Fusion approached and someone inside the car opened fire.
The car then continued down the street where another person was shot, police said.
The victims, described by police as two 30-year-old men, a 27-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man, were taken to area hospitals. Their injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, police said. The victims' names were not released.
Police have not identified a motive for the shootings and the suspects inside the car were described by witnesses as three black men.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Allegheny County police tip line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS (1-833-255-8477). Callers may remain anonymous.
