FALLOWFIELD TOWNSHIP - Police say they continue to investigate the drive-by shooting of a 13-year-old Donora girl.

Aaron Wagle, officer in charge, said investigators are still running down leads on the incident, which took place Nov. 14 on Route 88.

Craig Taylor, 36, of Donora, was traveling in his car with his daughter, Tempest, 13, at 9:11 p.m. when a vehicle pulled beside their vehicle and a gunman fired four shots into the moving auto.

One of the bullets struck Tempest Taylor in the upper body and she was taken to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. She has since been released.

"We have a couple of leads we're checking on. In fact we just got another call (Wednesday)," Wagle said.

"We've got some things that we're following up on, but we have not arrested anyone yet."

Wagle said the elder Taylor, who was not injured, claims to have no knowledge of the shooter.

The shooter allegedly was riding in a white 1990s model Taurus or Sable.

Taylor's vehicle was traveling north on Route 88 near Riverview Road. When the road opened into two lanes, the shooter's vehicle pulled up on the left side and fired into Taylor's car.

Tempest Taylor was sitting in the front seat.
