Two teens were shot Wednesday afternoon on Norwood Avenue in Pittsburgh’s Perry South neighborhood, police said.

The shooting was reported at 2:30 p.m. and was initially for a person shot in the 2600 block of Norwood. But when police arrived they found two teens had been shot.

Police didn’t release their names but said one of the victims was in critical condition while the other one was in stable condition at area hospitals.

The shooting happened in the same block as Angel’s Place daycare.

“It definitely was not a typical day,” Beth Banas, a spokeswoman for the daycare said. “We were all safe inside. The police did an amazing job.”

No children were hurt and the center’s emergency procedures were followed, Banas said.

Police are investigating what led up to the shootings.

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.
