Just after 2:45 a.m. Pittsburgh Police officers from Zone 3 responded to a call for an apparent hit and run at Gearing Avenue and Chalfont Street.
When officers and medics arrived on scene they located a male victim lying in the street with injuries to his face. He was conscious and alert, but did not offer information about what had happened to him.
During transport to the hospital, medics discovered the male had sustained a gunshot wound to the leg. The victim arrived in stable condition.
The investigation is ongoing.
