An employee of a Homewood convenience store was shot during a robbery earlier today.
Two masked men entered the store in the 600 block of North Homewood Avenue around 1 p.m.
The suspects shot a clerk twice in the stomach, according to Diane Richard, a spokeswoman for the Pittsburgh police. The victim was taken to UPMC Presbyterian in critical condition.
The suspects were seen in a silver car. It was unclear if they made off with any money.
K-9 units attempted to track the suspects with no success this afternoon.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Pittsburgh robbery squad at 412-323-7151. Callers may remain anonymous.
