A 14-year-old boy was shot and critically wounded Wednesday evening in Pittsburgh's Arlington neighborhood.

The boy and a friend were walking when they heard gunshots near the intersection of Fernleaf and Elsie streets and began running, city Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Sonya M. Toler said. They ran about four blocks before the boy who had been shot collapsed on Spring Street near the Arlington 3-8 School, Toler said.

Police and paramedics were called at 7:52 p.m. and the wounded boy was taken to UPMC Mercy, Uptown, for treatment of a gunshot wound to the chest, Toler said.

The friend is cooperating with city homicide detectives, Toler said. Police are combing the neighborhood for evidence, she said.
