Teenager Hospitalized After East Erie Shooting

Posted: Updated:

A teenager is recovering following a late night shooting in east Erie.

Erie Police were called to the intersection of East 5th and Ash Streets, around 11:00 p.m.  They arrived to find a 19-year-old man shot in the leg.

The victim was rushed to UPMC Hamot for treatment.  Neighbors at the scene tell us that they heard nearly a dozen shots fired.  Initial reports indicate that a group of five males fled the scene.

Police arrested a man at East 6th and Bayfront moments after the shooting, just blocks away.

But as of tonight, no word on any charges.
