3 injured during shooting at amusement park near Pittsburgh

The
Associated Press

West Mifflin, Pa. (AP) — Three people including two teenagers were shot late Saturday at an amusement park southeast of Pittsburgh, which was kicking off a Halloween-themed festival.

Police said two 15-year-olds and an adult man were injured during the shooting reported around 11 p.m. at Kennywood Park in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania. The victims were treated at hospitals and expected to recover, KDKA-TV reported.

Authorities said an argument between two groups of teenagers prompted the shooting by a suspect described as a male wearing a mask and black hoodie, KDKA-TV reported.

Kennywood had functioning metal detectors and security personnel were on duty, police said, leaving the unanswered question of how a gun entered the park.

Police are investigating using the park’s security cameras and witness statements, KDKA-TV reported.

Oh, deer: An unconventional rescue draws onlookers

It was hardly a typical Saturday for residents on East End Avenue in Pittsburgh’s Regent Square neighborhood, as word quickly spread that a deer had fallen down a large hole in the middle of the road.

“When it first went down, it was like fighting,” said Tracy Baton, a neighbor who saw the deer fall into the hole. “Now he’s a little quieter and down there looking pretty sad. And it’s broken off an antler.”

Rescue crews estimated the deer fell 40 feet.

The process included sedating the deer, before strapping it up and loading it onto a deer rack. The next step: relocating the deer somewhere safe.

The Bachelorette Finale Proves Why This Season Was a Failed Experiment

The partially-spoiled festivities kicked off with Recchia and Franco, whose engagement was broadcast alongside picture-in-picture footage of the Bachelorette and her dutiful parents reacting in real-time to the lovey-dovey scene with stoic agony. Minutes after their fairytale engagement ending aired, Palmer asked Recchia about the couple’s post-show challenges. While living apart and keeping their engagement a secret had caused turmoil, Recchia dropped the real bomb just before the commercial break: “He cheated on me.”

Bachelor Nation was then treated to footage of Recchia and Windey meeting at an undisclosed location some amount of time ago to discuss Franco’s infidelity. Recchia is understandably wounded and Windey is unflinchingly supportive, but the real takeaway from their conversation is that our other Bachelorette is also engaged. During their chat, which aired prior to Windey’s final rose, one can’t help but notice the giant sparkler on her ring finger, draining any juice out of Schwer’s apparent resistance to proposing.
