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.
Tonight, the City-County Building is illuminated to recognize Poison Prevention Week and the 50th Anniversary of "Mr. Yuk" in partnership with Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
For questions about the lighting at the City-County Building, please reach out to the Office of the Mayor.
