2 killed, 8 injured in shooting at Pittsburgh house party

Two young people were killed and at least eight others were injured when gunfire tore through a party at a short-term rental property in Pittsburgh early Sunday morning, police said.

More than 200 people were inside the Airbnb rental when the shooting occurred around 12:30 am, many of them underage, Pittsburgh police said.

A police release initially said nine people had been injured, but authorities later revised the number.

No arrests were immediately reported, but Police Chief Scott Schubert said “it is our top priority to find out who did this and get them off the street.” Schubert said police believe there were multiple shooters.

“It’s heartbreaking; here we are at Easter and we have multiple families, two that won’t see a loved one. … How can you even have a holiday when your child was involved in something traumatic like this?” he said.
