Five suspects in a Friday afternoon shooting incident in Swissvale were apprehended after a chase through several towns, including Munhall.

Swissvale police were responding to a call for shots fired along Woodstock Street.

That department deferred questions to Allegheny County police, who were unavailable for comment at presstime.

Munhall police reported they were pursuing a black Yukon Denali along Eighth Avenue, up Whitaker Way and along Hilltop Street around 3 p.m. when several suspects fled on foot.

An Allegheny County Sheriff's deputy reportedly spotted the vehicle.

Homestead and Munhall K-9 units searched the area. Whitaker and Rankin police assisted.

Trib Total Media news exchange partner WPXI-11 reported two people were taken into custody along the Homestead side of the Rankin Bridge.

No further information, including where the other three suspects were apprehended, was available at presstime.
