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.
