Pittsburgh police are looking for suspects who shot at officers on Feb. 8, 2019 in Pittsburgh’s West End.

Pittsburgh police are seeking suspects who shot at two officers late Friday night in the West End.

No officers were hit, according to a Pittsburgh police Facebook post, and police did not fire any shots.

Officers stopped a car with several people at about 11:30 p.m. on Broadhead Fording Road. According to police, two people got out, fired at the officers and fled.

Officers chased them while others remaining in the vehicle drove away.

The incident happened near Prospect Avenue and a SWAT perimeter was set up at a home in the 400 block of the road when officers believed suspects were inside. No suspects were found.

SWAT was then directed to a home in the 1500 block of Clarkton Street where the vehicle involved in the incident was located. Multiple suspects were found inside and questioned but no arrests were made.

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.
