Police are searching a five story building after someone said they think they saw a person carrying what may have appeared to look like a high-powered rifle while walking around on the roof of the building. At this time, we have no reports of shots being fired, and there are no injuries from those non-reported, non-fired shots. At this time, a large section of downtown has been closed down, as police units serch a five story building after someone said they think they saw a person carrying what may have appeared to look like a high-powered rifle while walking around on teh roof of the building. At this time, we have no reports of shots being fired, and there are no injuries from those non-reported, non-fired shots. Police are continuing to search a five story building after someone said they think they saw a person carrying what may have appeared to look like a high-powered rifle while walking around on the roof of the building. At this time, we have no reports of shots being fired, and there are no injuries from those non-reported, non-fired shots. Some traffic is being allowed through parts of downtown at this time, and further lanes may be opened as police continue to search a five story building after someone said they think they saw a person carrying what may have appeared to look like a high-powered rifle while walking around on the roof of the building. At this time, we have no reports of shots being fired, and there are no injuries from those non-reported, non-fired shots.

This just in- the suspect may have been reported to possibly appear to be a white male, possibly carrying what could have been a high-powered rifle with what could be a high-power scope. Also, we are hearing reports that school is still in session for some schools in the area as police continue to search...ad infinitum ad nauseum

2006-03-22 02:58:37 PM  
Pigeons shut down the city....a sad day for us, a glorious victory for the winged rats...or gutterbirds.

Someone shooting at pigeons ?? Jeebus, what would the Pittsburgh police do if they were looking for Osama bin Laden ?

I think Osama should be dressed up as a pigeon, and let loose in Pittsburgh

 
2006-03-22 02:59:56 PM  
It's Pittsburgh - everyone there's dead already.
 
2006-03-22 02:59:58 PM  
I guess I can turn that off now...

/was looking forward to a nice DC sniper-type story
 
2006-03-22 02:59:58 PM  
Pellet gun/high-powered sniper rifle... Yeah, I can see how someone would confuse the two.
 
2006-03-22 03:00:00 PM  
It was a pellet gun and he was shooting pigeons, haha.
 
2006-03-22 03:00:02 PM  
Caption for the video references a ghost town. That is one lively ghosttown. I mean that is what I call a target rich environment. Can't the police manage to get anyone off the streets.

By the way, have they actually seen the guy, or are they going on eyewitness accounts?
 
2006-03-22 03:00:03 PM  
Feathered rats?
