A 31-year-old man was hospitalized after being shot in the face early Saturday by a woman who he had an argument with in his car in Churchill, police say.

The victim was in stable condition, police said. They did not immediately identify him.

Detectives from the Allegheny County Police homicide unit were called to the intersection of Homer Drive and Churchill Road shortly after 2:15 a.m. in response to a 911 report of a shooting, authorities said.

Investigators said they found the victim and a female passenger in the car.

Police accuse the passenger, Taneisha Bruce, 32, of Verona, of shooting the victim during an argument.

Bruce was arrested and taken to the Allegheny County Jail in Pittsburgh to await arraignment on charges of aggravated assault, attempted homicide and recklessly endangering another person.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
