PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Police are investigating a shooting in Pittsburgh’s Garfield neighborhood that sent two men to the hospital Sunday evening.
According to Pittsburgh police, Zone 5 officers were called to the 400-block North Fairmount Street just before 8 p.m. for a shooting incident.
While police were investigating at the scene, authorities say the two victims managed to get themselves to the West Penn Hospital emergency room for treatment.
The two men have not been identified, but police say one is 41-years-old and the other is 34-years-old and both are from Garfield.
Police say the 41-year-old man suffered gunshot wounds to the abdomen and hand and the 34-year-old was wounded in the chest. Both are listed in stable condition.
Neighbors in Garfield say they heard several gunshots.
“We heard seven to 10 shots and went and looked and saw… it had been a few minutes, so our neighbors were coming out and talking to each other, so I came out to see if our neighbors were okay and one of our neighbors may have been shot, and so we just hope and pray that they’re fine,” said Kendall Pelling, a Garfield resident.
Police say they are not yet releasing information on suspects or a motive.
Anyone with information on the shooting is being asked to contact the Pittsburgh Police Homicide Squad at 412-323-7161.
