Police are investigating a shotting near Manhattan Street in Pittsburgh’s North Side on Dec. 5, 2018.

Heavy police activity has shut down Manhattan Street in Pittsburgh’s North Side since just after 4 a.m., WPXI reported.

Police are investigating an incident in which a man and a woman were shot while sitting in a car. A resident told WPXI that she heard 10 gun shots and saw the man and woman being put into ambulances.

Police said the pair were transported to Allegheny General Hospital. Names were not released but police said the woman is in critical condition and the man is serious.

Police said they were alerted to the incident after a spot shotter device detected the gunfire. Officers are focusing the investigation in an alley that is taped off at the corner near North Franklin Street in the Manchester neighborhood.

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.
