Police are investigating a Clairton shooting that wounded a 17-year-old male on Tuesday night.

The teen was treated for a neck wound and released from the hospital. Police said the bullet remained in the boy's neck upon his discharge.

Allegheny County police Lt. Andrew Schurman said approximately five people, including children, were in the apartment unit at 6702 McKinley Court when the shooting occurred. Schurman said the victim was not cooperative with police and would not identify the shooter, who is believed to have stopped at a neighboring unit in the housing complex after fleeing the shooting scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call 412-473-1300.
