A man was found with two non-fatal gunshot wounds near the intersection of Repp Road and Emerald Drive in Plum on Tuesday, April 4, 2017.

A man found at a Plum intersection early Tuesday was treated for non-life threatening gunshot wounds, including one on his face.

Allegheny County Police Lt. Andrew Schurman said the 26-year-old man was found just before 12:30 a.m. at the intersection of Emerald Drive and Repp Road. That's about a mile from Coxcomb Hill Road, also known as Route 909.

Schurman said the man, whose identity was not being released, was shot once in the face and once in the torso with a small-caliber gun.

“We believe he was shot where he was found,” Schurman said.

Police didn't immediately have a motive.

The man is not from Plum and has lived in a number of locations, his family told police.

Anyone with information is asked to call the county police homicide unit at 412-473-1300. Callers may remain anonymous.

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.
