A man was wounded Thursday afternoon in Homewood.

The man, identified only as a 36-year-old resident of Penn Hills, was hospitalized in critical but stable condition following the shooting that occurred at 3:45 p.m. in an alley near the intersection of Blackadore and Frankstown avenues, Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard said.

Police believe the man got into an argument with two men and a woman in the alley and one of the men pulled out a gun and shot him in the arm and torso, Richard said. The man ran about 150 yards before collapsing, Richard said.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call detectives at 412-665-3605.
