An unidentified 41-year-old woman is in critical condition at a local hospital following a shooting Sunday night on Evans Avenue.

Allegheny County police said McKeesport police responded to a report of a shooting just after 10:30 p.m. to the 700 block. The victim was suffering from gunshot wounds to the back, arm and leg, a county police spokesperson said, and was hospitalized.

On Monday, county police homicide detectives said the victim was sitting on her porch with other individuals when a man with a mask covering his face walked towards the residence and opened fire, striking the victim.

A man from the victim’s house returned fire as the suspect fled on Evans Avenue toward Beacon Street.

Anyone with information concerning the incident is asked to call the Allegheny County police tip line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS (1-833-255-8477). Callers may remain anonymous.

County police also may be reached via Twitter and Facebook.
