Just before 8 p.m. Pittsburgh Police officers from Zone 4 responded to UPMC Presbyterian for a male who arrived at the hospital by private means with a gunshot wound to the hand.
When responding officers spoke with the victim he said he was on Larimer Avenue behind Target on the 6200 block of Penn Avenue when he heard gunshots.
He told police he realized he had been shot in the hand so he flagged down a car to take him to the hospital.
Police are investigating.
