Teen Found Shot Near Crafton Heights Bus Stop
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A Crafton Heights teen is in critical condition following a late-night shooting Thursday.
He was shot at an apartment complex, but stumbled from the building to a nearby bus stop.
One witness who was visiting a friend in one of the apartments had her 4-year-old daughter with her and said they were terrified. She says she heard eight to 10 gunshots go off right outside the door in the hallway.
“I instantly grabbed my daughter,” she said.
The 18-year-old was shot two to four times in the side. He was found at the bus stop near the intersection of Woodlow and Steuben streets.
A passerby found him and helped apply pressure to his wounds. Paramedics then worked to stabilize him.
“They (the gunshots) were so loud, I heard he got hit up pretty bad,” the witness said.
The victim told police that he couldn’t identify the shooter.
A nearby van was also struck by the gunfire.
The teen is in UPMC Mercy Hospital in critical, but stable condition. His identity has not been released.
