One man is in the hospital in serious condition and another is on the lam after a shooting in Clairton this afternoon.
Police were called to 3505 Miles Ave. at 12:48 p.m. today for a report that a man was shot outside a building in the Century Townhomes, said James Morton, assistant superintendent of the Allegheny County police.
Supt. Morton said the victim went inside the home and argued with a woman. Shortly after he left, a second man arrived and fought with the first, eventually pulling out a gun and firing three or four shots. It's not clear how many shots hit the victim, who was flown to a local hospital.
The suspect ran away.
It wasn't immediately clear how the victim and the suspect knew each other.
