The shooting happened around 1 p.m. in Harrison Village, just a few blocks from the shooting death of a teenager on Sunday in McKeesport.

Police said a fight took place between the shooting victim and James Scott. During the fight, police said Scott pulled out a gun and shot the victim, a 22-year-old man. Police have not released the identity of the victim. Officers said the victim was shot multiple times in the leg.
