Breaking: 7 Wounded, 2 Dead In Pittsburgh Psych Ward Shooting

- By Bossip Staff

Crazy stuff out of Pittsburgh:

Two people are dead, including a gunman who opened fire in the lobby of the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, says a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center spokesman who was briefed by police, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting. At least five other people were wounded in the shooting just before 2 p.m. ET.

Reports of a second gunman and hostages were incorrect, police said.

Update at 4:29 p.m. ET: Still no word on the identities of the dead and wounded, or of the conditions of those hospitalized.

Evacuation of patients and staff was continuing within the past half hour, according to the Post-Gazette.

The paper writes, “Children, many shoeless, were carried by staff members and loaded into the back an armored SWAT vehicle.”

We’ll keep you updated about this insanity as word gets to us. Unfortunate and sad stuff.
