A 22-year-old man is in critical condition at a Pittsburgh hospital after a shooting Sunday morning in the Third Ward.

Allegheny County police Lt. Andrew Schurman said in a prepared statement that McKeesport police and paramedics responded to the 1100 block of Walnut Street at 2:45 a.m. after 9-1-1 callers reported a shooting.

There, they found the victim, whose name has not been released, suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Allegheny County police homicide detectives are investigating, Schurman said.

Anyone who heard or saw any of the events leading up to the shooting is asked to call the Allegheny County Police tip line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS (1-833-255-8477). Schurman said callers can remain anonymous.
