PITTSBURGG — Sydnee Lucas watched a car zoom past her on the South Side early Sunday, heard the shots and then felt the pain.

Lucas, 24, was among hundreds of people on the sidewalks outside East Carson Street's bars and nightclubs when five Pittsburgh police officers opened fire on a car. A stray bullet grazed her lower back.
