Dispute precedes Duquesne shooting
Police say a domestic dispute preceded a shooting in Duquesne on Monday.
Reginald Kenney, 33, of Homestead was shot in the hip at a residence in the 100 block of S. Seventh Street at about 5:30 p.m., according to reports.
Kenney told investigators he does not know who shot him.
Police had been at the residence about half an hour earlier for a disturbance between Kenney and a juvenile relative over the juvenile's alleged drug use. Police said they told Kenney and the teen, who had been arguing in the street, to take their dispute inside.
Officers returned to the house after emergency dispatchers reported an open phone line at the residence.
Kenney told police he was talking with an adult relative outside the home when a passerby on foot or in a vehicle shot him.
He was taken to UPMC Mercy for treatment.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
