Carnegie, Pennsylvania

From the May 7, 2006 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

A 19-year-old man was shot in the chest yesterday when he allegedly broke into an apartment and got into a dispute with the resident about money, Carnegie police said.

"His injury does not appear life-threatening," said Chief Jeffrey Harbin. The bullet "hit a rib and apparently came out." The man, whose name was not released, was taken to Allegheny General Hospital.

Around noon yesterday, a man living in the 900 block of Charles Street called Carnegie police to tell them that someone had broken into his apartment and they fought about money. He fired a shot, but didn't know if he'd hit the intruder. When police arrived at the residence, they found a .22-caliber rifle, but no gunshot victim.

Then, officers learned that someone who'd been shot had just been found in front of the fire station in nearby Scott.

"They put two and two together and got that was probably their victim," Chief Harbin said.
