A young man was taken by helicopter to a Pittsburgh hospital on Thursday after being shot in Arnold.

Arnold police Sgt. Joe Nixon said police were notified about the shooting near a self-serve car wash in the area of 14th Street and Constitution Boulevard shortly after 10 a.m.

The victim, believed to be in his teens or early 20s and from Pittsburgh, called a cousin after he was shot. Nixon would not release the name of the victim because he may be a minor.

Nixon said the victim was shot once in the buttocks. The bullet was protruding from, but did not exit, his abdomen. Nixon said he was in too much pain to talk with police at the scene.

Nixon said paramedics believe the wound is not life-threatening. He was flown to Allegheny General Hospital, where he was reportedly in surgery.

Nixon said police recovered one 9 mm shell casing.

There were no witnesses, and police have not made any arrests, Nixon said.
