PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh Police are investigating after an early Thursday morning shooting on Pittsburgh’s North Side.
Just before 4:30 a.m., first responders rushed one person to a local hospital.
ShotSpotter alerted police to the shooting on Carrington Street at Federal Street.
“I was dead asleep around 3:15 in the morning. I heard seven to 10 gunshots right outside our apartment building,” said neighbor Chelsea Prior.
Police tell KDKA that a man was found shot multiple times. He is listed in critical condition.
“He was crawling by the time they came,” said Prior. “He was actually on all fours, crawling. He somehow rolled himself from the grass area to the road, so he was moving, he was conscious. I did see his phone lit up, so he was trying to make some sort of call.”
Detectives laid evidence markers down on the ground and grass near the intersection with Federal Street.
A glass doorway was shattered and the sign above the door read “Federal North Apartments.” KDKA watched as people swept up the shattered glass and boarded up the doorway.
Later in the morning, police blocked off the street to bring in a K-9 to search for evidence.
No word yet if the victim was staying at the building or lived there.
No arrests have been made.
If anyone has any information, please give police a call at 412-323-7800.
