- The Washington Times - Wednesday, November 13, 2013

At least three students were shot at Brashear High School in Pittsburgh Wednesday afternoon and police have detained at least one suspect, local CBS affiliate KDKA-TV reported.

One of the victims is a 17-year-old male who was grazed in the head by a bullet. He is believed to be in stable condition and recovering at a local hospital.

Two more male students were shot, one in the neck and shoulder and the other in the leg and foot, the station reported. None of the victims' injuries are believed to be life-threatening.

Police were searching the nearby woods for as many as three gunmen.

Sources told KDKA that at least one person is in custody at this time.

A statement by Mayor-Elect Bill Peduto's office cautioned residents to lock their doors.

"Consistent with requests by city police, we advise all residents in the area to lock their homes and stay indoors, while the police continue to search for the perpetrators," the statement said.
