Ohio Street for a home invasion. According to the report, two 26-year-old females were in their unit when they heard the front door knob jiggle. One female looked at the door and observed two black males enter the unlocked door in a forcible manner. The males began screaming at the females and waving guns around. One of the females grabbed her 2-year-old son and moved to another area of the apartment for safety. The males continued to yell and wave guns around before leaving the scene. The females and child were not injured.</p> <p>While on scene, Officers were informed that a male victim was seen bleeding from the face and walking from 255 E. Ohio Street to Allegheny General Hospital. According to the investigation, the 21-year-old male victim was jumped by the two black males in the 255 E. Ohio Street vicinity. The victim fell to the ground and the actors continued to hit and kick him in the head and body. It was determined that these were the same actors involved in the home invasion. The victim was treated at Allegheny General Hospital where he was last reported to be in fair condition.</p> <p>Based on information gained during the course of the investigation, Zone 1 Officers and Detectives identified one of the actors as Dominique Rucker. At 3:26 p.m. Officers were in the Northview Heights area looking for Rucker and observed him in the 400 block of Mt. Pleasant Road. As Officers got closer, Rucker entered a residence. He was ordered out of the residence and taken into custody without incident.</p> <p>Officers then learned that Rucker was at a residence in the 100 block of Hazlett Street prior to encountering him. When Officers approached the residence on Hazlett, they smelled a strong odor of burning marijuana. Officers knocked and after approximately 2 minutes Dominique Reed-Graves answered the door. When the door opened, Officers observed marijuana on a table inside the front door and a young child on the couch next to the table. When Officers asked Reed-Graves to step outside to talk to them, he became irate and attempted to slam the door in the Officer&rsquo;s face. When Officers attempted to take Reed-Graves into custody, he pushed the Officer in the chest and again tried to shut the door. As Officers took Reed-Graves into custody, four additional males &ndash; identified as Jordan Gray, Therreus Lindsey, Damone Porter, and Zyshawn Johnson &ndash; came up from the basement of the apartment. All males were detained and secured the residence in anticipation of a search warrant. While clearing the residence, Officers encountered two more small children in one of the bedrooms.</p> <p>A search warrant was obtained and Officers found four guns, heroin, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and several cell phones in the residence.

Motorcycle officers and traffic officers will be out in full force to help ensure motorists obey the 15 MPH school zone speed and properly stop for school buses using red flashing lights.</p> <p>Commander Ed Trapp advises that our message is simple &ndash; &ldquo;Members of the Pittsburgh Police will take the necessary measures to help protect our children. We will continuously enforce school zone violations throughout the City to ensure all students arrive at school safely. Motorists are reminded to drive with care, remain alert and obey all laws when driving through school zones or approaching a school bus that is picking up or dropping off children.&rdquo;</p> <p>Pennsylvania&rsquo;s School Bus Stopping Law requires motorists to stop at least 10 feet away from school buses that have their red lights flashing and stop arm extended. Motorists must stop when they are behind the bus, meeting the bus or approaching an intersection where a bus is stopped. Motorists following or traveling alongside a school bus must also stop until the red lights have stopped flashing, the stop arm is withdrawn, and all children have reached safety. If physical barriers such as grassy medians, guide rails or concrete median barriers separate oncoming traffic from the bus, motorists in the opposing lanes may proceed without stopping. Drivers who violate the law face the following penalties: 60-day driver&rsquo;s license suspension, 5 points on your driving record and a $250.00 fine.<br /> <br /> Commander Trapp also advised that &ldquo;as children head back to school, the community will see an increased officer presence. School crossing guards, bus drivers and other school officials are also keeping an eye out for our children and will relay information regarding violators to officers accordingly.&rdquo;<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> <strong>Tips for Motorists</strong><br /> <br /> No matter if you have children in school or not, safety is everyone&rsquo;s responsibility. Motorists must pay attention to the task at hand, and that means slowing down in school zones, and watching for children and bicyclists. Younger children aren&rsquo;t able to judge speed and distance as well as adults so it&rsquo;s the responsibility of drivers to be alert.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Motorists:</p> <ul> <li>Slow down and obey all traffic laws and speed limits; pay attention to school zones.</li> <li>When a school bus is stopped and red flashers are on, drivers in both directions are required to stop before reaching the bus and remain stopped until the flashing lights are turned off.</li> <li>Watch for children walking or bicycling in the street and for youngsters gathering near bus stops.</li> <li>When backing out of a driveway or leaving a garage, look for children walking or biking to school</li> <li>Don&rsquo;t drive distracted (putting on makeup, texting, talking on the phone, etc.)</li> <li>Don&rsquo;t drive impaired</li> <li>Always use your seatbelt</li> </ul> <p align="center"><strong>###</strong></p> Thu, 25 Aug 2016 15:21:55 -0400 FOUR-ALARM FIRE IN HAZELWOOD http://www.pittsburghpa.gov/publicsafety/article.htm?id=6424 <p class="p1"><span class="s1"><b>FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE</b></span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">PITTSBURGH, PA &mdash; At approximately 2:41 p.m. Firefighters responded to the 5100 block of Lyle Street for three row houses on fire.
