Pittsburgh police are searching for the person responsible for a string of gunshots early Friday morning near a Fineview intersection prone to gunfire.

Officers responded shortly after 1 a.m. for a report of shots fire near Meadville Street, according to Public Safety spokeswoman Sonya Toler.

Officers searched the area but found no suspect and no victim, Toler said. A gray Honda CR-V with bullet damage was found a short distance away on Sandusky Street. On Belleau Drive, officers found five shell casings.

The CR-V has since been reported stolen, Toler said.

The area near the intersection of Belleau Drive and Belleau Street has been the site of several shootings in recent months.

A man was shot and killed early Sunday morning on Belleau Drive near the Allegheny Dwellings housing complex. In the middle of the afternoon on June 17, two people were shot and injured in the same area, and another person was shot and injured a week prior.

Anyone with information can call Zone 1 police at 412-323-7201. Callers can remain anonymous.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
