Police in Duquense impounded a grey Nissan on Aug. 25, 2019 that investigators believe was involved in an incident during which a woman walking along the street was shot in the leg.

A woman walking home from a store in Duquesne on Sunday afternoon became collateral damage when someone in a vehicle started shooting at another vehicle during a chase along Commonwealth Avenue, police said.

Duquesne police reported that a sedan was chasing an SUV along Commonwealth Avenue toward West Mifflin. At least one occupant in one of the vehicles was firing at the other vehicle. The unidentified woman walking along the street around 1:45 p.m. was wounded in the lower leg, according to police.

The SUV crashed into a house a short distance away in West Mifflin, according to police. Two men in the SUV were arrested after a short foot chase. Police did not identify the suspects.

Police said one of the men was wanted by authorities and the other was carrying a substantial quantity of suspected heroin.

The two suspects were taken to the Allegheny County Jail in Pittsburgh.

At approximately 8:40 p.m., City of Duquesne police officers located the second vehicle believed to have been involved in the shooting.

Police said there were bullet holes in the front of the grey Nissan that likely were caused during the shooting incident.

The vehicle was unoccupied when it was discovered.
