PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh police say a man shot several times while sitting in his vehicle was able to drive to a gas station, where he stopped because he was critically injured.

Police say Shot Spotter sensors alerted police to gunfire at 12:13 a.m. Monday. Shot Spotter uses electronic sensors to alert police to likely gunfire.

When police responded to that location, they found shell casings but no victim. But a call soon came in from a nearby gas station that a wounded motorist had stopped and gotten out of his vehicle.

The man turned out to be the person wounded in the Shot Spotter shooting and he was taken to UPMC Presbyterian hospital in critical condition. He was later upgraded to stable.

Police haven’t named or arrested a suspect.
