No one was injured Tuesday night when two shots were fired through the front window of a Penn Borough home during a drive-by shooting, police said.

The unknown assailant fired the shots from a vehicle into the Youghiogheny Street home at about 9 p.m., Penn Borough police said. Police were not certain how close the bullets came to hitting the occupants. Youghiogheny Street intersects with Coal Street, the main road connecting Jeannette with Manor.

Penn Borough police believe the residence was targeted in the shooting.

A forensics team from the state police at Greensburg is assisting in the investigation, Penn Borough police said.

Anyone who may have witnessed the shooting or has information about the suspect is asked to call Penn Borough police at 724-527-6540 or state police at Greensburg at 724-832-3288.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
