BRADDOCK (KDKA) — The Allegheny County Police Department’s Homicide Unit responded to a report of a shooting Sunday morning.
First responders arrived on the scene in the 1300 block of Braddock Avenue just after 9 a.m. to find a 21-year-old man who was suffering from a gunshot wound in his car. The man was transported to a local hospital where he was last listed in stable condition.
There was another passenger in the vehicle, who was not injured, but taken to the hospital as a precaution.
