In a Pittsburgh shooting outside Brashear High School on Wednesday, three male students were injured but no one was killed. Six people were being questioned by police.

The shooting occurred about 2:50 p.m near the city’s largest public high school with 1,416 students. A portion of the same building houses South Hills Middle School, which has 580 students.

Police said three men dressed in black were reported shooting toward the school from a hill above, WTAE News reported. Witnesses reported seeing “the shooters” flee into the woods.

No shots were fired inside the school, Pittsburgh Police Bureau spokeswoman Diane Richard said at a news conference, according to WTAE. She said the shooting could possibly be linked to an incident that happened at the school on Oct. 18. She did not give details, but she said the school was on lockdown for a week.

As of late Wednesday afternoon, six people, five males and one female, were being questioned by police as “persons of interest,” according to WTAE. All of them were taken from a nearby home.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported one of the students shot was grazed in a leg and foot. Another was hit in the neck and a shoulder. The third student returned to the school after being grazed by a shot.

"The one that was grazed in the head made his way back to school, and he was pulled inside the school by one of the school administrators, and that’s how it came out that there was a shooting at the school," Richard said at the news conference.

The victims, all male teenagers, were still being treated at city hospitals early Wednesday evening.

Terri Minor, who told WTAE she was the aunt of a victim, described her nephew as stable.

“He's been shot in the neck. "This is sad. This isn't right. My grandson goes to Brashear (but was not among the injured). This is crazy. To hit home like this, this isn't good."
