Strikes on the South side at night cause concern for business owners, an employee hit by random bullets

A shooting in southern Pittsburgh left an employee of the Cambod-Ican Kitchen hospitalized and caused thousands of dollars in damage early Saturday morning. That’s not even 24 hours since Pittsburgh Mayor Ed Ganey unveiled the anti-violent Pittsburgh Peace Plan, designed to reduce crime and violence in the city. “We had a crowd of about 20 young people in the dining room. One of our boys went outside, came back and said that there were boys there waving their weapons. So he called 911 and said, “Hey, we need to get some officers down here soon,” said Daniel Maxwigen, co-owner of Cambod-Ican Kitchen on E. Carson Street. “Within 10 minutes boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, we start hearing bullets.” Maxwigen said his employee went to the kitchen to call 911 and when he went out to the dining room, “he felt a blow to the bottom of his leg ascending up his leg.” Pittsburgh police confirmed they were called to the 17th Street location next to Carson Street on the south side for a shot call. When they arrived, they found the officer who had been shot in the leg by a bullet. The incident has caused concern among other local business owners in the area. “It’s two doors down,” said Kenzi McWicker, general manager of Milkshake Factory South Side. “It was a little shocking and a little scary that it was so close because it’s never been as close as it used to be, I feel.” McVicker said he could even talk about possible changes with his boss to ensure that his staff is safe. ”I am even considering talking to my boss to see if we need to make a change, what I can do for the safety of my team because I hire high school students and I don’t want them close or in any danger. ” “It definitely makes me feel insecure, like my life is at risk,” said Tandar Lin, who works at Street Noodles, a business near Cambod-Ican Kitchen. “I feel this is happening, but I feel there needs to be more security for us.

A shooting in southern Pittsburgh left an employee of the Cambod-Ican Kitchen hospitalized and caused damage worth thousands of dollars early Saturday morning.

That’s not even 24 hours since Pittsburgh Mayor Ed Ganey unveiled the anti-violent Pittsburgh Peace Plan, designed to reduce crime and violence in the city.

“We had a crowd of about 20 young people in the dining room. One of our boys went outside, came back and said that there were boys there waving their weapons. So he called 911 and said, “Hey, we need to get some officers down here soon,” said Daniel Maxwigen, co-owner of Cambod-Ican Kitchen on E. Carson Street. “Within 10 minutes boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, we start hearing bullets.”

Maxwigan said his employee went to the kitchen to call 911, and when he went out into the dining room, he “felt a blow to the bottom of his foot rising to his feet.”

Pittsburgh police confirmed they were called to the 17th Street location next to Carson Street on the south side for a shot call. When they arrived, they found the officer who had been hit in the leg by a bullet.

The incident has caused concern among other local business owners in the area.

“It’s two doors down,” said Kenzi McWicker, general manager of Milkshake Factory South Side. “It was a little shocking and a little scary that it was so close because it’s never been as close as it used to be, I feel.”

McVicker said he could even talk about possible changes with his boss to make sure his staff is safe.

“I’m even considering talking to my boss to see if we need to make a change, what I can do for the safety of my team because I’m hiring high school students and I don’t want them near or inside anything in danger.”

“It definitely makes me feel insecure, like my life is at risk,” said Tandar Lin, who works at Street Noodles, a business near Cambod-Ican Kitchen. “I feel like this is happening, but I feel there needs to be more security for us. We want to make money, but we also want to live.”

Mayor Ed Ganey turned to partnering with business in his Peace Plan, so Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 asked businesses what they would like to see if the city asked:

“It’s difficult because it’s not a universal issue for everyone,” McVicker said. “Increasing the police presence may clog some things, but people will always find another alley to hide in. So, frankly, I’m not sure what we can do to solve this problem. But it’s just been escalating for the last two years. “

“They have to limit the number of people who go around. There needs to be more police forces, because once you’re drunk, you don’t know what’s going on, “Lynn told Pittsburgh’s Action News 4. “Slowly increase security for all the people outside by having fun, or for all the people who walk here because you never know what’s going to happen.”

The mother of the injured employee told Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 that he was in stable condition at the hospital.

Pittsburgh police have not yet announced arrests.
