Carnegie police confiscate weapons after Pennsbury Village incident

Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

Carnegie police confiscated seven weapons, including three assault-style weapons, after an arrest last week in Pennsbury Village.

Police received a report of a shot fired at a residence in the 1100 block of Pennsbury Boulevard at 1:14 p.m. Jan. 10, with a child still inside.

Upon arrival, police charged Jason M. Bugansky, 29, of Pittsburgh with aggravated assault, simple assault, two counts of reckless endangerment and possession of a small amount of marijuana. Police said Bugansky pointed a loaded .44-caliber handgun at a woman, who fled the scene and called 911.

In their investigation, police found seven weapons, including variations of the AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, the Mini-14 semiautomatic carbine and the Israeli Galil Rifle.

“I'm glad that our police responded quickly and promptly and were able to arrest this individual without this incident escalating into something that could have been really bad,” Carnegie police Chief Jeff Harbin said.
