Pittsburgh Students Injured in Shooting


Pittsburgh officials say six people are in custody in a shooting that wounded three students outside a city high school. The six were brought in for questioning.

Spokeswoman Diane Richard says police believe the shooting outside Brashear High School after classes ended Wednesday might stem from a drug-related dispute between students at the school last month.

Pittsburgh public safety director Michael Huss said Wednesday that six people are in custody. Richard says those in custody are not suspects or necessarily going to be charged. Police aren't saying whether they're also students.

The victims are all boys. Two are 17 and one is 16 years old. None were seriously wounded. Police say the victims were not immediately cooperating with investigators.
