ARLINGTON (KDKA) — A Pittsburgh Police officer shot a man in the leg during an incident in Arlington on Sunday afternoon.
It happened around 5:30 p.m. in the 2400 block of Charcot Street.
Pittsburgh Police say officers were sent to the scene for a report that someone had been pistol-whipped. When they arrived, they spoke to the victim, who had a laceration on his head. The victim told officers a man sitting on a nearby porch was the suspect. The suspect was later identified as 34-year-old Dontay Green.
Officers approached Green, who police say was armed with a handgun.
Police say “during the ensuing incident,” a police officer fired one round at Green, striking him in the leg. He was taken to a local hospital in stable condition and was expected to be released Sunday night.
Allegheny County Police are investigating.

According to the criminal complaint, body cam footage clearly shows Green jumping off the porch, lifting up his shirt and a handgun is visible in his waistband.

Green is facing multiple counts of aggravated assault and other charges.
