New Kensington police are looking for a possible witness to the wounding of a man in a car parked behind the Clarion Hotel at about 6 a.m. on April 8.

Police and Westmoreland County detectives on Tuesday said Charles Justin Stitt, 21, isn't a suspect. Stitt's last known address was in Apollo.

“He is a possible witness we need to talk with,” said county Det. John Clark. Police have deemed Stitt a “person on interest.”

The wounded man, whom police have identified only as a black man formerly of Vandergrift, has been released from Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh.

Police said he was shot once in his abdomen and once in an elbow. A small-caliber pistol was used.

The man was found inside a car behind the hotel at 300 Tarentum Bridge Road.

Earlier this month, police said they are looking for a blue Honda Accord that may have been driven by the shooting suspect. The car is described as a two-door model, probably dating from 2003 to 2008, that might have had tinted windows.

The car might have damage to its passenger door, and the driver's airbag might have deployed.
