17-year-old shot multiple times in Penn Hills gas station parking lot

PENN HILLS, Pa. — A teen was shot multiple times in the parking lot of a BP gas station in Penn Hills Monday afternoon.

The 17-year-old boy was shot as many as four times in the lot at the corner of Frankstown Road and Robinson Boulevard, next to the Penn Hills Volunteer Fire Department, at around 4:30 p.m. He was eventually rushed to a nearby hospital in critical condition with gunshot wounds to his torso.

“I pulled into the department, all I see is all these Penn Hills police and units from Wilkinsburg,” a firefighter, who did not want to be identified, said. “I saw some guns drawn and ready and all that.”

The firefighter said he arrived to work seconds after the shooting.

“The suspect was on the run. The police shot out of here,” he said.

The alleged shooter then ran off toward an East Hills housing development. Investigators said this person is likely not a threat to the community and that this was a targeted shooting.

Police are still searching for the suspect.
