Allegheny County police are investigating an overnight shooting in Wilkinsburg that sent a 16-year-old boy to the hospital.

The victim had multiple gunshot wounds but is in stable condition at a Pittsburgh hospital, police said.

A 911 call shortly after midnight Saturday brought police to the 1500 block of Montier Street in Wilkinsburg on a report of a shooting. The victim was seen stumbling on the roadway and told a motorist that he had been shot, police said.

Police and EMS responders found the teenager shortly thereafter. County homicide detectives determined there was a secondary scene nearby on Maple Street, where they found several spent shell casings.

The victim may have been with or encountered two other people just prior to the shooting, police said.

Anyone with information should call the Allegheny County Police Tipline at 1-833-ALL-TIPS.

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.
