Pittsburgh police are investigating a shooting in Hazelwood this evening that left a man in critical condition.
The man was shot while outside along the 4700 block of Monongahela Street and ran to a residence just around the corner on Hazelwood Avenue, Zone 4 police said.
Tarik Allen, who lives on Hazelwood Avenue, said he was watching TV when a tall, young man banged on his door, bleeding from the chest and saying he'd been shot and needed help.
"He just fell out on my floor," Mr. Allen said.
Mr. Allen said he dialed 911 shortly before 6:30 p.m. and held a tourniquet to the man's chest until paramedics arrived. He said he didn't know the man, but had seen him walking in the neighborhood before.
The man was taken to the hospital in critical condition. Police are still looking for the shooter.
No further information was immediately available.
