Four juveniles were shot Tuesday afternoon outside of Westinghouse Academy in Pittsburgh’s Homewood neighborhood just after school let out, police said. None of the injuries are reported to be life-threatening, officers said. Police said the student victims, three males and a female, were shot at 2:23 p.m.
A district spokeswoman said Westinghouse will not be open Wednesday, but the school will operate remotely.
Pittsburgh Mayor Ed Gainey showed up at the scene and spoke with the media. Earlier Tuesday, he attended a funeral for slain McKeesport police Officer Sean Sluganski.
“Let’s be honest, these are our kids,” Gainey said. “That’s why we talk so much about getting these guns off the streets. We can’t keep these guns out of our kids’ hands, and that’s the problem. We still don’t have any idea how these guns are coming into the city.
