Police investigators are searching for two shooters who opened fire at a backyard party late Wednesday in Pennsylvania, killing five people and wounding three others, according to NBC News.
The shooting occurred just before 11 p.m. in Wilkinsburg, a community just east of Pittsburgh. Three women and a man were found shot on a back porch and were pronounced dead at the scene. A second woman died at a local hospital, the report says:
“It looks like, right now, they were all fleeing toward the back door of the residence when the second gunman fired from the side of the yard, and they all seemed to get caught on the back porch,” Allegheny Country police Lt. Andrew Schurman told reporters.
Three others were wounded. Two men were described as being in critical condition and a woman was described as stable.
Investigators found ballistic evidence from two weapons and believe at least two gunmen were involved, Schurman said. No one at the cookout or party fired any shots, police believe.
