Police tape spools at the scene of a shooting in East Pittsburgh that killed at least one person and injured three others on early Friday, Nov. 20, 2015.

One man was killed and three others wounded in an East Pittsburgh shooting early Friday, Allegheny County police said.

The shooting happened about 12:25 a.m. in an apartment in the Prospect Terrace housing complex, according to police Lt. Andrew Schurman. Four men were shot inside the apartment, and there were no other occupants, he said.

Reno Wallace II, 26, was pronounced dead at the scene, the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office reported.

The other three men, all in their early 20s, Schurman said, were taken to hospitals in stable condition. Two attempted to drive themselves to a hospital after the shooting and were stopped by police. All three are expected to survive, the lieutenant said.

The names of the wounded have not been released.

Police are unsure of the motive behind the gunfire, Schurman said.

Anyone with information is asked to call county police at 412-473-1300.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
