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.
