Pittsburgh police are investigating a shooting in Homewood that left a man critically injured Tuesday night.

Officers responding to a repot of shots fired about 8:25 p.m. found Dayon Shelton, 21, lying in the 1000 block of Brushton Avenue, police said. Shelton, who was struck once in the chest, was taken to UPMC Presbyterian in critical condition, police said.

Investigators believe Shelton was entering or exiting a vehicle on Brushton when someone fired at least 25 times at him with a high-powered rifle from a nearby parking lot.

Shelton ran from the shooter and collapsed on the street about 50 yards away from the gunman, police said. Bullets struck three vehicles, and one bullet went through the roof of a house and into the bedroom of a young boy, police said.

No one else was hurt by the gunfire, police said.

Police have not arrested anyone and are asking anyone with information to call 412-323-7161.
