Pittsburgh Police officers from Zone 2 responded to a ShotSpotter alert followed by 911 calls of a shot fired in the 1800 block of Colwell Street at approximately 4:50 p.m. 

When they arrived on scene they learned a male victim had run from the area of Colwell Street and got on a PAT bus around the corner on 5th Avenue at Dinwiddie Street.

He suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen and was transported by EMS in stable condition to a local hospital.

The investigation continues.
