A man was found with two non-fatal gunshot wounds near the intersection of Repp Road and Emerald Drive in Plum on Tuesday, April 4, 2017.

A man found at a Plum intersection early Tuesday was treated for non-life threatening gunshot wounds, including one on his face.

Allegheny County Police Lt. Andrew Schurman said the 26-year-old man was found just before 12:30 a.m. at the intersection of Emerald Drive and Repp Road. That’s about a mile from Coxcomb Hill Road, also known as Route 909.

Schurman said the man, whose identity was not being released, was shot once in the face and once in the torso with a small-caliber gun.

“We believe he was shot where he was found,” Schurman said.

Police didn’t immediately have a motive.

The man is not from Plum and has lived in a number of locations, his family told police.

Anyone with information is asked to call the county police homicide unit at 412-473-1300. Callers may remain anonymous.
