PITTSBURGH, Pa. — Pittsburgh Police are investigating after 10 people were shot and two juveniles were killed in a mass shooting early Easter Sunday in the East Allegheny neighborhood of the North Side.
The victims were identified by the medical examiner’s office late Sunday night as 17-year-old Jaiden Brown and 17-year-old Mathew Steffy-Ross.
Pittsburgh Public Schools said that four students were injured during the shooting.
Videos circulating on social media shows the moments that shots were fired at the party on the Pittsburgh’s North Side.
Police initially said that 11 people were shot, but they updated those numbers at a noon news conference. They now say that 10 people were shot, 2 were killed, and 5 others had other related injuries such as broken bones while attempting to escape the shooting.
