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 Bureau’s scent-tracking bloodhound, Cappy, was called to search for a suspect when possible evidence was recovered at the scene. Cappy did not detect a trail.
The investigation continues.
