Pittsburgh homicide officers are investigating a shooting in Garfield that left two men injured Sunday night.
Zone 5 officers responded to a shooting around 7:45 p.m. outside 412 North Fairmount Street. The two victims, both of Garfield, were not at the scene and arrived at West Penn Hospital shortly after the shooting, police said in a statement.
One of the victims, a 41-year-old, was shot in the abdomen and hand. A second 34-year-old victim was shot once in the chest. The men were transferred to Allegheny General Hospital, where they were listed in stable condition Sunday night.
