MOUNT OLIVER, Pa. (AP) - Authorities in western Pennsylvania say two boys are expected to survive critical injuries in a drive-by shooting near Pittsburgh that also wounded two other people.

Police chief Matt Juzwick told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Saturday that a 13-year-old boy hit by the 7 p.m. gunfire in Mount Oliver improved after surgery at UPMC Mercy.

He said an 11-year-old boy taken to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh had also improved.

A 16-year-old was also taken to UPMC Mercy with minor injuries and a man was treated at the scene.

Police said the three teenagers were shot on steps near a convenience store and the adult was hit on the opposite side of the street.



The man said the driver and front-seat passenger fired out of both sides of a dark-colored car. Juzwick said the motive for the shooting is unknown.
