Mass shooting at Pittsburgh party leaves two dead

Two young men were killed and at least nine others injured in a mass shooting early Sunday in Pittsburgh, police said.

The shooting happened just after 12:30 p.m. at a party at a short-term rental building on the north side of town, the Pittsburgh Police Department said in a news release.

The party was attended by no less than 200 people, many of whom were minors, police added. No other details about the deceased were provided.

“As many as 50 bullets were fired inside, prompting some revelers to jump out of windows, sustaining injuries including broken bones and lacerations,” police said. “Several more shots were fired outside the house.”

When officers arrived at the scene, gunshots were heard “and several youths were observed fleeing the area on foot and in vehicles,” police said.

Evidence was being processed at no less than eight separate crime scenes and detectives from the bureau’s Major Crimes Unit were speaking to witnesses and reviewing video footage, police added.
