Mar. 7-State police are investigating a shooting along Route 28 that left two people hospitalized with gunshot wounds.

Police said the incident occurred Saturday around 3:30 p.m. near the Route 8 exit in Sharpsburg.

When troopers arrived, Pittsburgh police were on the scene with a vehicle "which had several indications of being in a shooting," a state police report read.
