A police presence was requested at a funeral where a mass shooting took place last week but Pittsburgh police did not show up, officials said Thursday.
Six people were injured when two people opened fire outside the Destiny of Faith Church on Friday. Five people were shot, and one person was injured in the melee.
Police officials confirmed that a police presence was requested but not fulfilled.
“We regret that PBP did not provide the presence asked of us on a difficult day,” acting Chief Thomas Stangrecki said in a statement.
