Pittsburgh police are investigating why a Mt. Washington teenager showed up at UPMC Mercy early Sunday with a gunshot wound to her right shoulder.

The victim, 15, told police at the hospital shortly before 2 a.m. that she was walking with two friends near a 7-Eleven store on Brookline Boulevard when she was shot.

911 dispatchers had received calls of shots fired in the 2300 block of Edgebrook Avenue in Brookline at about the same time.
