Pittsburgh Shooting: Three Students Injured After Gunman Opens Fire Near School

A Pittsburgh shooting left three high school students injured and police SWAT teams are searching for a suspect.

The shooting took place on Wednesday afternoon near Brashear High School, with three male students suffering gunshot wounds. Police said one of the victims was grazed in the head, the other grazed between the neck and shoulder, and the third shot in his foot and arm.

At least one of the victims is in surgery. None of their injuries are considered life-threatening, police said.

Police spokeswoman Diane Richard said the Pittsburgh shooting victims are not cooperating with police.

“We do have some leads on the actor or actors,” Richard said.

Richards added that one suspect was seen running into a nearby forest. She said there could be other shooters involved.

The students were reportedly shot while walking to a vehicle they had driven to school in earlier in the day. The Pittsburgh shooting prompted the high school to be placed on lockdown.

Brashear is the largest high school in Pittsburgh with 1,416 students.

After the shooting, police in an armored vehicle were seen at a nearby home, where two people were taken out in handcuffs.

The Pittsburgh shooting follows up a spate of random and large-scale shootings, many of them at schools. Within the past few weeks, there has been a mass shooting at Sparks Middle School in Nevada, another at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., and an attack at Los Angeles International Airport.

The school was placed on lockdown after the first reports of the Pittsburgh shooting.
