Pittsburgh Bureau of Police officers from Zone 2 responded to a Shot Spotter alert of multiple shots fired, followed by 911 calls, in the 2600 block of Penn Avenue in the Strip District, just before 2 a.m.
When they arrived on scene they found a male victim who had suffered several gun shot wounds lying on a sidewalk across from a parking lot.
He was transported by EMS to a local hospital in critical but stable condition. The Crime Scene Unit arrived to process the scene.
Officers spoke with some witnesses who were in the area because a night club had just let out for the evening in the same block.
Police are actively searching for a suspect.
The investigation continues.
