Three people were shot and a child injured Thursday night in Pittsburgh.

Public Safety spokeswoman Sonya Toler said two wounded people were at UPMC Mercy and one at Allegheny General Hospital. “I can tell you that the child was not shot but was injured by flying glass.”

Pittsburgh police were called at 9:09 p.m. for a report of shots fired near a convenience store at the intersection of Brownsville Road and McKinley Street in Knoxville, dispatchers said. Dispatchers were told a bullet struck the window of a vehicle and a child was injured. Two people later showed up at UPMC Mercy seeking treatment for gunshot wounds.

About five minutes later, police were called for a report of a man shot in the back several blocks away on Michigan Street in Beltzhoover. He was taken to Allegheny General Hospital.
