A man who was shot Wednesday evening in Pittsburgh's East Hills neighborhood died in an Oakland hospital.

Derrick Lyman, 24, of the East Hills, died at 6:55 p.m. at UPMC Presbyterian, where he was taken following the shooting that occurred about 30 minutes earlier, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said.

Lyman was outside an apartment building along Park Hill Drive when he was shot two or three times, Pittsburgh police Lt. Daniel M. Herrmann said. Lyman fled into the hallway and collapsed, Herrmann said.

He said police were searching for at least one man who was seen running from the area.
