Posted October 6, 2012: Pittsburg police say a 19 year old male is in stable condition after a gun shot wound to the face. Witnesses say, the man was found lying on the side of the Highway 69 bypass near the water treatment plant around 5 o'clock Saturday. He was taken to a hospital by a medical helicopter.
Officers remained on scene interviewing witnesses and neighbors. Witnesses we talked to say the man who was shot in the face ran from a car onto Highway69 where he stopped traffic. Witnesses say the man was covered in blood and in shock -- and that he asked them to call an ambulance.
While some officers gathered evidence on the scene, others spoke with neighbors and entered several homes to conduct searches.
Pittsburg police say they have not arrested anyone, and say the general public is not in danger.
