Multiple shots were fired in Pittsburgh on Friday and there is an unknown number of victims at this time, said Pittsburgh Public Safety officials.
Shots were fired in the Brighton Heights area and safety officials tweeted it remains a “very active scene.”
Six patients from the shooting have been transported to Allegheny General Hospital, according to Dan Laurent, a spokesperson for the Allegheny Health Network.
All the patients were inbound to the hospital around 12:45 p.m. on Friday. Laurent did not yet have information on the patients’ conditions, nor the nature of their injuries.
