According to city officials, a sheriff’s officer was hurt while responding to an ongoing, “extremely active” gunshot incident in the Garfield district of Pittsburgh.

“The active scene in Garfield began this morning when a detail from our office attempted to serve an eviction notice, which was followed by gunfire from the occupant of the residence,” Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Mike Manko said.

“One of our sergeants, who was leading the detail, sustained a minor non-gunfire related injury while avoiding the incoming gunfire. He is OK,” Manko said.

Police have issued an evacuation order for the neighborhood and issued a warning to others.

“Officers are beginning to evacuate people from the houses in the 4800 block of Broad St.” Pittsburgh Public Safety tweeted at 12:11 p.m. Wednesday.

“If you are inside, please shelter in place, dial 911, and identify your address, location. Officers will be entering to help guide you to safety.”

About an hour earlier, police asked residents to “Avoid the 4800 block of Broad Street and N. Mathilda Street in the Garfield neighborhood due to an active shooting situation.”

This is an extremely active situation with shots continuing to be fired,” Pittsburgh Public Safety said.

She now has bullet holes in her house, according to a neighbor who was at home across the street from the shooting scene and told CNN affiliate WPXI.

Authorities banged on a door, she said, and “when they went in, I just heard him shoot out. And then it was a barrage of bullets.”

“I … was trying to get down to the basement, but I was holed up in my work office because the bullets were so close,” she told WPXI by phone. “After that, I just was able to make it, crawl down to the basement.”

Although the suspect has not been named publicly by the authorities, there is just one, according to Manko.

The FBI stated that it is aiding local law enforcement, but it left additional remark to the sheriff’s office and Pittsburgh police.
