A 24-year-old man is recovering after he was shot Monday night in Homewood, and investigators asked for help finding leads on the suspect.
Officers from Pittsburgh police Zone 5 station in Highland Park were called to the Lounge 7101 2nd Time Around bar on Frankstown Avenue about 12:20 a.m. for a report that a man who had been shot came into the bar asking for help, major crimes unit Lt. Kevin Kraus said in a press release.
Police later learned that the man, whose name Lt. Kraus did not release, was sitting in the driver's seat of a 2013 Chevy Camaro parked at the intersection of Frankstown and North Lang avenues when a man fired and ran away from the scene.
Investigators found 10 spent shell casings from a semi-automatic firearm on the sidewalk near the passenger side of the car, the lieutenant said.
Medics took the victim to UPMC Presbyterian in critical condition with gunshot wounds to his torso and right arm. After surgery, police described his condition as stable.
Lt. Kraus said detectives are not releasing any information about a motive or suspect in the shooting.
Police asked anyone with information to call Zone 5 detectives at 412-665-3605 or police headquarters at 412-323-7800.
