Pittsburgh police are investigating an alleged home invasion in the Knoxville neighborhood in which two people were shot Friday night.

Soon after arriving at the 300 block of Moore Avenue at about 7 p.m., police found “multiple shell casings and a male resident with a gunshot wound to the hand,” spokesman Chris Togneri said.

He said that man was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

During the investigation, police discovered that a resident shot at the alleged home invader.

That man was hit by gunfire multiple times.

The wounded suspect fled on foot to a residence on the 200 block of Moore Avenue. An ambulance transported that man to a hospital in critical condition, Togneri said.

Several other people were in the home when the incident occurred.

Moore Avenue was closed while investigators checked the scene.

Police are investigating.
