A 23-year-old man is in critical condition today after being shot multiple times Thursday night in the hallway of a McKeesport apartment building.

Allegheny County police homicide detectives and McKeesport police are investigating.

The shooting occurred about 11 p.m. outside Apartment 307 of Building 733 of the Hi View Garden Apartments, a privately owned complex in the 700 block of Sixth Street.

Some sort of altercation preceded the shooting, but details were sparse, county homicide Lt. Andrew Schurman said.

Officers were alerted by a 911 call and found the man in the hallway outside the apartment with multiple gunshot wounds to the torso. He was hospitalized.

Lt. Schurman said the man is from McKeesport but is not a resident of the apartment complex. He said he did not know why the man was there.

Allegheny County police asked anyone with information to call homicide detectives at 412-473-1300 or McKeesport police at 412-675-5015.
