Real as it gets: A backstage encounter with Taylor Swift | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

 

The darkly lit waiting room that was decorated with black leather couches, the tour’s snake motif and small version of the throne from the “Look What You Made Me Do” video.

As for reviewing, I’m less good at faking it, so if the concert wasn’t good, I would have said so. But what’s the chance of a Taylor Swift concert not being good?

Obviously, it’s on massive scale, but just one of the little details I noticed outside Heinz Field is that for the fans waiting in line during the afternoon to get in, there were TV screens set up with video packages of her to keep them entertained.

GIANT EAGLE SHOOTING: Man, woman shot outside Pittsburgh Giant Eagle | WPXI

“You could hear boom, boom, boom,” said Diane Kennedy, who was inside the Giant Eagle when it happened.

On the outside, grocery carts, shattered glass and dozens of evidence markers were seen after the shootout.

“It appears the gun exchange occurred outside the supermarket, there were two vehicles hit and appears we are very fortunate no other individuals were struck by bullets,” Director of Public Safety Wendell Hissrich said.

Witnesses told Channel 11 it was chaos.

“People were running that way, this way, ran into the Giant Eagle to get away from the gunfire, jumping in their cars. It was just chaos,” Beth Blair said.

Hissrich said a man and a woman were shot in the parking lot.

Witnesses said one of them fired back, then the man and woman both ran into the grocery store.

For two hours, Kennedy and the other shoppers were told not to leave since the store was on lockdown.

“Everyone was hysterical cause they did not know was out of the store so we all had to stay in one place and wait and wait,” Kennedy said.


UPDATE 8 P.M. – Investigators are searching for at least one shooter tonight after two people were transported to the hospital in Greenfield.

Police they got calls for a “gun battle” after a man and woman were shot in the parking lot at the Giant Eagle on Murray Avenue.
