Drug-related ambush near Pittsburgh, PA High School

A trio of honor’s students on their way to way to read to blind war orphans…

Who am I kidding. This was a drug fight, and likely gang-related.

The shooting at 590 Crane Ave. was reported about 2:50 p.m., the supervisor said. 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. Police said other students were taken to UPMC Presbyterian and UPMC Mercy.

Several streets nearby have been closed, including Crane Avenue at Fallowfield Avenue and Dagmar Avenue.

Police said the three people shot knew the shooter or shooters. Pittsburgh police said information from school officers indicated today’s shooting might be linked to a fight at the school Oct. 18 — possibly drug-related — which led to a lockdown there for a week.


This was not a school shooting and did not happen on school property, despite some of the sensational headlines reported elsewhere.

Four idiots believed to be related to the shooting were pulled from a nearby home by SWAT and taken into custody.

Update: “…the victims are not cooperating with police.” I bet.
