MCKEES ROCKS, Pa. (AP) – A shooting in western Pennsylvania has left two youths wounded, including an 8-year-old boy who was struck by a stray bullet.

Allegheny County police say the shooting in McKees Rocks occurred around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.

A 17-year-old boy was shot in the arm on Locust Street, and a shot fired in that incident struck the younger boy who was standing outside an apartment complex about two blocks away.
