New Kensington police recovered a stolen handgun on Saturday while investigating a gunshot along Kenneth Avenue.

An officer on patrol just before 6:30 p.m. reported hearing a gunshot in the 1200 block of Kenneth and almost immediately saw two black males running across the road into an alley.

Detective Sgt. Dino DiGiacobbe said officers found an open door to an abandoned house and, inside, found two boys, ages 15 and 16, matching the description of the males seen running across the street. Near where the boys were found hiding, DiGiacobbe said police found a semi-automatic handgun. It had been reported stolen in New Kensington in 2011.

“It was loaded,” DiGiacobbe said.

The boys, both from New Kensington, were released to their parents. So far, no charges have been filed.

No injuries were reported in the incident, and DiGiacobbe said any charges are pending the continuing investigation.
