An unidentified Kittanning man was shot in the leg during an altercation outside the Hot Spot Hotel & Lounge on Reynolds Avenue about 11:45 p.m. Saturday.

Kittanning police Chief Ed Cassesse said details are still emerging but authorities have identified both parties involved.

“Two guys were arguing inside the bar, and one asked the other to go outside,” Cassesse said. “Somehow a crowd grew, these guys started fighting and one ended up shot in the leg.”

Police have not released the names of either men, but both are described as white males in their early 20s.

“We don't know who shot who,” Cassesse said. “We don't know if the guy who got shot was the possessor of the gun or if it belonged to the other one. We're still in the preliminary stages of investigation.”

The wounded man was transported to ACMH Hospital, then transferred to a facility in Pittsburgh. Neither man has been charged yet.
