Pittsburgh police are investigating three robberies at gas stations that happened between Sunday night and early Monday morning, police spokesman Chris Togneri said.

In all three cases, men wearing dark clothing entered the stations and demanded cash. At least one of the men had a gun, Togneri said.

The first robbery was reported at 9:50 p.m. Sunday in the 4000 block of Liberty Avenue on the border of Bloomfield and Lawrenceville. Another was reported at 11:30 p.m. Sunday in the 4000 block of Beechwood Boulevard in Greenfield. The third was at 2 a.m. Monday in the 2900 block of Banksville Road in Banksville, Togneri said.

Police are interviewing witnesses and reviewing any video from the stations that were robbed and are investigating to find out if they are related, Togneri said.

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.
