A 14-year-old boy is recovering after police said he was shot inside his Marshall-Shadeland home Wednesday night. It was one of three shootings in the area in a three-hour span.

Investigators said the teen was hurt when a bullet was fired through a window of a home on Frederick Street about 7:30 p.m.

The victim was taken to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh where he is listed in stable condition.

Detectives said they found shell casings on a nearby street. So far, the victim's name has not been released.

Investigators said the boy was not the intended target. They believe the bullet was meant for his brother.

Pittsburgh Police Cmdr. RaShall Brackney said the boy's shooting was one of three shootings in the area within three hours Wednesday night. Brackney said all of the shootings are connected.
