PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania — Pittsburgh Bureau of Police detectives had a very busy weekend after a rash of gun violence across the city.


In all, there were four shootings, which left one person dead and six others injured.


Pittsburgh Police Chief Scott Schubert said that obviously, one shooting is too many for them in the City of Pittsburgh and that this wasn’t a normal weekend for them with this many victims.


On Monday, 40-year old Lamont Pendleton of the Hill District was arrested in connection with an early morning shooting in the Bedford Dwellings neighborhood. Police say Pendleton shot a male victim in the stomach. That man is expected to recover.


Located in the Allegheny County Jail, he is facing several charges including criminal attempted homicide and aggravated assault.


On Sunday night, detectives say shots rang out after a large fight on Broad Street in East Liberty. Police say four people were shot and are all expected to make full recoveries.


As of Monday, there were no arrests due to the case.


Early Sunday morning, a woman was found shot to death in her car along Lincoln Avenue by the police. The medical examiner identified the woman as 63-year-old Elaine Pearson. Shattered glass was left along the sidewalk in Lincoln-Lemington, where her car once sat. No arrests have been made and police have not yet released a motive.


Also, early Sunday morning, police found a man lying on the sidewalk in Homewood.


According to the Pittsburgh Police, none of these incidents were related to one another.


In all of these shooting incidents, police ask for residents to call (412)-323-7800 with any information that could lead to an arrest.
