PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A student is in critical condition after a shooting outside Oliver Citywide Academy on the North Side.
According to reports, two suspects walked up to a school van at dismissal and opened fire, a spokesperson for Pittsburgh Public Schools said. The 15-year-old student was gravely wounded, shot twice in the chest, and was in surgery as of 3 p.m.
All students were brought inside the building and the school was placed on lockdown as a precaution, Pittsburgh Public Schools said. Police said the students inside weren't believed to be in danger. The school reopened around 3:20 p.m.
It's unclear what the relationship is between the two suspects and victim, police said. According to investigators, the student and the driver were the only ones inside the van. The bus driver was upset, but uninjured and cooperating with police, investigators said.
Police are searching for the two suspects. The pair is considered armed and dangerous, but the only description police could provide was that they were wearing masks and dark clothing and appeared to be younger.
"This is obviously, for us, a tragedy anytime anyone is shot, but to have a teenager in front of a school is something we don't accept. We're going to do everything we can with our investigative resources, every tool we have to try to locate the people that were involved and get them into custody," said Pittsburgh police chief Scott Schubert.
There was a heavy police presence outside the school before investigators began to clear the scene when the school reopened.
One person was initially detained, but police said that person wasn't related to the shooting and was released. Investigators know which way the suspects ran after the shooting, and they're now looking at video footage.
