PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police say a 21-year-old man has been hospitalized in critical but stable condition after being shot at a Pittsburgh playground near where children and other adults were playing basketball.
Pittsburgh police Sgt. Chad O’Brien tells The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (bit.ly/1dTWv6F) that the man suffered gunshot wounds to the abdomen and leg during the shooting at Grandview Playground around 6:10 p.m. Sunday.
