Pittsburgh police have determined that a man who was found in the parking lot of the Family Dollar store in the North Side had not been shot.

A 60-year-old man fell in the parking lot on Wednesday evening after suffering what those calling 911 said was a seizure, city Public Safety Department spokeswoman Sonya Toler said. The man, whose identity was not released, was taken to Allegheny General Hospital, where physicians found a head wound that caused concerns that he had been shot, Toler said on Thursday.

City homicide detectives investigated but could find no evidence that a shooting had taken place.

It was later determined that the head wound was from a prior medical procedure, Toler said.

The man remains hospitalized in the intensive care unit, Toler said.
