14-year-old boy stabbed in Pittsburgh, receives help outside car dealership in Castle Shannon

PITTSBURGH — A 14-year-old boy was stabbed multiple times overnight in Pittsburgh, police said Wednesday.

The stabbing happened in the Beechview/Brookline area of the city, but police were called to help the boy at a car dealership in Castle Shannon.

It was after midnight when officers from several departments, including Pittsburgh, Castle Shannon, Mt. Lebanon and Baldwin, went to the Kenny Ross dealership on Library Road. The boy was in a car in the parking lot, along with two teenage girls and another teenage boy, police said.

The teens pulled into the parking lot at the instruction of 911 dispatchers, officials said.

An officer treated the boy’s injuries and called paramedics, Castle Shannon Police Chief Ken Truver said. The boy was taken to a hospital. His condition has not been released.

“A 14-year-old was in the backseat bleeding profusely from multiple stab wounds. He was being tended to by one of the female teens in the backseat. That officer assessed his injuries, grabbed a first aid kit from his patrol vehicle. He was able to pack some of the wounds until the ambulance arrived,” Truver said.

Pittsburgh police are handling the investigation.
