Two people were shot in Pittsburgh’s Elliott neighborhood Tuesday night, according to the Public Safety Department.

The unidentified victims — an 18-year-old man and a juvenile — were hospitalized.

The adult was shot on Fredonia Street around 9:40 p.m. He ran into a local business at the corner of Chartiers Avenue and Lorenz Avenue to get help and collapsed, police said.

An ambulance arrived and took him to a local hospital in critical but stable condition.

The second victim, a juvenile, walked into UPMC Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh about two hours later with a gunshot wound.

Police believe both victims were shot in the same incident.

The juvenile’s condition is unknown.

Police are investigating. Anyone with information is asked to contact the department at 412-323-7800.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
