PITTSBURGH – North Braddock Police are searching for a man who was involved in a shooting that resulted in a crash.

Authorities responded to a report of gunfire outside of Tunns Bar located at 1200 Bell Avenue.

The shots are believed to be the result of a physical altercation between a 29-year-old man and two other men inside of the bar.

After the incident, the man fled the bar and went to his vehicle. Multiple shots were then fired at the vehicle, resulting in the man crashing into an abandoned home.

The victim of the crash was not injured during the shooting, but was taken to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
