Canonsburg police are investigating a shooting Tuesday night in the borough.

Police received a report of shots fired about 11:10 p.m. on Euclid Avenue, Chief R.T. Bell said. While officers were investigating, they received word of a possible gunshot victim at the Washington Hospital emergency room, Bell said. The victim was taken by medical helicopter to Pittsburgh for treatment, Bell said.

He did not know the victim's condition, but said he believed the man suffered a gunshot wound to the leg.

Police are interviewing people and collecting evidence, Bell said.

“We know very little about this now,” he said.
