MCKEESPORT (KDKA) — Police say a hit-and-run accident led to a shooting in McKeesport.

A man inside the Ragtime Saloon in Homestead was told someone hit his Jeep. He went out to take a look and saw a red SUV leaving the area.

The shots were fired in the Hi View Garden apartment complex. When it was all over, the man driving the Jeep was shot several times with wounds to his torso and face.
