Man shot near Larimer gas station in stable condition
A man shot Friday night in Larimer was in stable condition Saturday morning at UPMC Presbyterian, Pittsburgh police said.
They said the shooting happened about 11:30 p.m. near the Sunoco gas station at 6481 Frankstown Ave. The victim, identified as a 27-year-old, was shot three times in his lower extremities, police said.
“From what witnesses were able to tell us, there was an argument that broke out at the pumps. What the argument was about — we don't know,” police spokeswoman Sonya Toler said.
Toler said she wasn't sure if police had interviewed the victim yet. Some people left the shooting scene, so police aren't sure how many were involved in the incident, she said.
Police did not release the name of the victim and made no immediate arrests. An investigation was continuing Saturday morning.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
