2 men shot in separate Pittsburgh incidents
Pittsburgh police responded to two separate shootings late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning.
Officers responded just before midnight to reports of a shooting on Idlewild Street at Collier Street in Homewood.
There, they found a man who had been shot in the leg.
Then, just before 2 a.m., officers responded to a Shot Spotter alert of multiple shots fired, followed by 911 calls, in the 2600 block of Penn Avenue in the Strip District.
Officers found the man, who had several gun shot wounds, lying on a sidewalk across from a parking lot.
Police said they spoke with witnesses who had just left a nightclub on the same block.
Both men were in critical but stable condition when taken to hospitals, according to police.
Both shootings were under investigation.
