Pittsburgh police charged a McKees Rocks man with shooting a Northview Heights man during a fight.

Police helped security officers at the public housing complex break up a fight about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, the city reported. Police said one man was shot when he and his brother tried to defend themselves against an armed man.

Police arrested Blake L. Green, 34, of McKees Rocks and took him to Allegheny General Hospital, where he was in stable condition. Police did not specify his injuries but said he had a stolen gun, nine stamp bags of heroin and $150 in counterfeit bills. Police charged him with aggravated assault, simple assault, drug possession and firearms violations.

Paramedics took the victim to UPMC Mercy, Uptown, where he was stable with a gunshot wound to the groin, police said.
