Local News

Erie Police are investigating a shooting inside of a home on East 19th Street.

Police responded just before 12:30 to the 400 block of East 19th where, according to police, the caller says he was in the house as two men and a woman tried to break in.  He alleges that one of them tried kicking in the back door and then fired shots at the house.  

The man says before the police arrived, the group ran into the house next door where, at least, the woman is believed to live. 

Police took the three people in that neighboring house and the alleged victim into custody for questioning.  Police say no one was injured.
