The Pittsburgh regional FIRST Robotics Competition, held in the Peterson Event Center, was put on lockdown because of this incident. It looks like the search for an alleged second shooter was a red herring — the more recent stories have not mentioned any second shooter.
A message sent to Pitt employees at 2:08 p.m. said that several people have been injured and that “lock-down recommended until further notice.”
It also said, “If safe to do so, tell others of this message.”
UPMC hospitals in Oakland were put on a bronze alert at 1:58 p.m. for someone with a weapon in Western Psych. The alert requires employees to stay where they are and respond to the alert with their exact location.
Family members of those involved in the shootings will go to Petersen Event Center. Those safely evaucated from Western Psych are also being taken to Petersen.
