Pittsburgh Shooting, Pittsburgh public safety director Michael Huss said just before 5 p.m. the scene was secure and officers were being sent back to their usual assignments. He and acting police Chief Regina McDonald said students running back toward the school created initial confusion about where the shooting took place.
That confusion meant more police showed up at the school than were needed.
“We train on this, we plan that reaction when that call goes out, you go and neutralize it,” Mr. Huss said.
The shooting at 590 Crane Ave. was reported about 2:50 p.m.. The school day there ends at 2:46 p.m. Police said three men dressed in black were reported shooting toward the school from a hill above.
An Allegheny General Hospital spokesman confirmed one male high school student was a patient and that his condition was considered stable. AGH trauma surgeon Alisa Cross said that student was expected to make a full recovery.
Police said the two other students were taken to UPMC Mercy. Outside the hospital, Danielle Eberhardt waited for answers. She said she got a call that her son, Robert Minor, was shot in the neck and taken to Mercy. His brother, Dajaun Law, said Robert is in 11th grade at Brashear.
His father, Robert Minor, said he’s eager to check on his son, whose condition he described as stable.
