UPDATE: 08/24/20 8:41 p.m. The baby was pronounced deceased at the hospital. The investigation continues.
Pittsburgh Police from Zone 1 responded to 911 calls and a Shotspotter activation for multiple shots fired in the 100 block of Rhine Place just after 6 p.m.
When officers arrived on scene they were directed to a residence where they found a one-year-old boy with a gunshot wound to the head.
Police quickly transported the baby to the hospital. With a police sergeant driving, two police officers held the baby in the backseat and worked to control the bleeding. The child arrived at the hospital in critical condition.
The initial investigation shows the shots emanated from outside, traveling through a window and then two walls before hitting the baby.
VCU and Homicide detectives are investigating. The Mobile Crime Unit processed the scene.
There are no arrests at this time. The investigation is ongoing.
