Gunfire near a local college campus put the entire school on alert late Wednesday night.
Students at California University of Pennsylvania said they received text and email alerts around 9:30 p.m. reporting shots fired close to the school.
Officials said a 20-year-old was shot in the leg in the 400 block of Second Street in California Borough.
Police said two people confronted the 20-year-old victim in the hallway of his apartment building. The man was shot in the leg when he reached for the gun, police said.
Investigators said the victim was flown by medical helicopter to a Pittsburgh hospital. His name and condition have not been released.
The school-issued alert told students that two people are wanted in connection with the shooting and they were last seen in a dark colored four-door Audi with oversized chrome wheels.
Investigators said they found a car matching the description in nearby Fayette County and took two people in for questioning. There is no word on any charges.
