'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.

Police are investigating a shooting that injured two people in West Homestead late Thursday night.

Police said a 38-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man sustained non-life threatening injuries after a gunman fired shots into an apartment at 303 Walnut St. at about 11:20 p.m.

Allegheny County police said the female victim heard a knock at her door, answered it and did not immediately see anyone. A man appeared at the door and began firing shots into the apartment unit. The woman was shot in the leg and the male victim was grazed.

Police said the woman was hospitalized while the man was treated and released.

Allegheny County police Lt. Andrew Schurman said witnesses reported seeing three black males flee the area on foot immediately after the shooting.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Allegheny County Police at 412-437-1300.
