Homestead police are investigating the weekend shooting of a Wilkinsburg man in the 300 block of E. 12th Avenue.

Police said the 18-year-old victim was experiencing minor bleeding from wounds to both legs when they arrived at 7:21 p.m. on Saturday. The victim had knocked on the door of a house for help and was receiving first aid from a resident when authorities arrived.

Police described the wounded man as uncooperative and said he did not know who shot him.
