A bullet fired during an apparent drive-by shooting in Hazelwood on Monday afternoon went through the side door of an unoccupied school, according to police.

Pittsburgh police from the Zone 4 station responded to a ShotSpotter report near the intersection of East Elizabeth and Gertrude streets around 4:10 pm., according to a department of public safety spokesman.

Officers arriving at the scene discovered a vehicle that had been shot many times.

No one was injured during the incident, according to police.

Crime scene investigators recovered shell casings from the scene, including one from a bullet that went through the glass of a door at a school building, police said.

No students were in the building at the time.

Witnesses told Tribune-Review news partners WPXI-TV that the bullet came from a drive-by shooting incident.

The TV station reported that one of the bullets that was fired hit the Spartan Community Center, which offers after-school programs for children.

Police are continuing to investigate.

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.
