A 14-year-old was taken to a hospital in critical condition Tuesday night after he was shot in the shoulder in Pittsburgh’s East Hills neighborhood, according to Pittsburgh police.

The shooting happened about 10:45 p.m. in the 2100 block of Park Hill Drive.

Public safety spokesman Chris Togneri said police responded to a report of a shooting and found the teenager with a gunshot wound to his shoulder.

According to police, a friend of the victim initially said someone emerged from a wooded area nearby and shot the teen. However, police said, video evidence shows that statement is false. Police said there is video that shows that the teen emerged from a residence with the gunshot wound.
