'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.

Carnegie Mellon University students in Doherty Hall were evacuated on Wednesday night when what appeared to be smoke was seen in the building.

City firefighters who were called at 8:43 p.m. to the classrooms off Frew Street found there was no fire, said Jerry Hirschfeld, a deputy city fire chief. Instead, they found that the exhaust system began taking in sawdust that flowed throughout the building.
