Allegheny County police were investigating a shooting in Penn Hills Saturday night.

Allegheny County Police are seeking information on a shooting Saturday that critically injured a 23-year-old man.

Police were dispatched just before 8 p.m. Saturday to the 7500 block of Manilla Street in Penn Hills for a report of a man found shot in the street. Penn Hills Police and paramedics found the man, who had been shot multiple times, lying in the roadway.

He was taken to an area hospital, where he remained in critical condition Sunday morning.

County police initiated an investigation. It is believed that the man was likely shot while inside a vehicle and then tossed onto the roadway.

Detectives are attempting to identify a vehicle involved, but reported they have no suspects.

Anyone who heard or saw anything is asked to call the county police tip line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS (1-833-255-8477). Callers can 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.
