AJ Willett has been identified by police sources as the suspect in a Pittsburgh school shooting that left three students with gunshot wounds.
Police said at least one person opened fire on a group of three students who were walking to a car they had driven to Brashear High School in that morning. The three suffered gunshot wounds, with one victim grazed in the head, the other grazed between the neck and shoulder, and the third shot in his foot and arm.
Sources say police believe the Pittsburgh school shooting was gang-related. Police spokeswoman Diane Richard added that the shooting victims are not cooperating with police.
“We do have some leads on the actor or actors,” Richard said.
Richard said that a suspect was seen running into a nearby forest, and there could be other shooters involved.
A police armored vehicle was later seen driving into a house, and police later led out two people in handcuffs. It wasn’t immediately clear is Pittsburgh shooting suspect AJ Willett was among those arrested in the home.
Brashear is the largest high school in the Pittsburgh city school district with 1,416 students. The school was placed on lockdown after the shooting.
