Police are investigating a shooting that occurred in the area of Route 837 near Grant Avenue on Friday, May 3, 2019.

A 30-year-old man was in critical condition Friday after he was shot in the stomach in Duquesne, according to police.

The shooting was reported shortly after 10:30 a.m. at the intersection of Grant Street and Route 837.

City of Duquesne Police officers and paramedics dispatched to the intersection found the man shot once in the stomach, according to Allegheny County Police Inspector Andrew Schurman.

The man was taken to a local hospital. Police didn’t identify him.

Schurman said at this point in the investigation it appears the man was driving his SUV and stopped at a traffic light.

According to Schurman, the man exited his SUV and walked over to a dark color sedan, which was occupied by a man and woman. An argument started and the man driving of the sedan shot the victim, detectives said. The sedan fled the area in the direction of Homestead.

Detectives are searching for video along the route the sedan fled.

There is no other description to release at this time, Schurman said.

City of Duquesne Police also released information about the shooting on their Facebook page.

Route 837 northbound was closed while police conducted their investigation.

The investigation is ongoing.

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.
