Two people were hospitalized in stable condition Friday night after being shot in the parking lot of the Giant Eagle supermarket in Pittsburgh’s Greenfield neighborhood, police said.

The victims were found with gunshot wounds inside the supermarket, at Murray Avenue and Loretta Street, when police responded to reports of gunfire at 5:10 p.m., said Chris Togneri, a Pittsburgh police spokesman.

Several dozen casings were found on the ground, suggesting gunfire exchange between the two victims and one or more shooters, Togneri said in a statement.

Detectives were questioning the victims at an unidentified hospital, Togneri said.

Meanwhile, the investigation continues as police search for the other suspect or suspects in the shooting.

“The store will remain closed until law enforcement completes its investigation. Police cleared customers from the store and there were no injuries to customers or team members,” said Dick Roberts, a Giant Eagle spokesman.

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.
