3 wounded in separate shootings in Pittsburgh
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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
