Investigators said the 18-year-old victim walked into a nearby restaurant for help and collapsed.

He was rushed to the hospital in critical but stable condition.

A short time later, detectives said a juvenile with a gunshot wound showed up at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.


There is no word on his condition.

Channel 11 looked at the data and in the last two years in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County, there have been at least 24 victims who died from gun violence, all of them 20 years old and younger, several in their mid-teens.

That number does not include the teens who are victims of gun violence and survive their injuries, like the two teens Tuesday night in Elliott.
