'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Two young men were wounded Wednesday night in shootings a few minutes apart in two Pittsburgh neighborhoods.

Police and paramedics were called at 7:25 p.m. to the intersection of Knox Avenue and Bausman Street in Knoxville and found a 17-year-old male shot in the abdomen. He was taken to UPMC Mercy, Uptown, in critical condition, police told dispatchers. City homicide detectives are investigating.

A 19-year-old man was reported shot in the abdomen shortly after 7:30 p.m. in the 7300 block of Hamilton Avenue in Homewood. Preliminary indications are that the man was in serious but stable condition, dispatchers were told.
