Crime: Pittsburgh shootings: 2 dead after multiple people were shot in the East Allegheny area of Pittsburgh, officials say

Shooting challenges downtown Sacramento's rebuilding efforts

  Shooting challenges downtown Sacramento's rebuilding efforts SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The mass shooting that police say was a gun battle between rival gangs that left six dead and 12 wounded earlier this month shook the downtown core of California's capital — and created another challenge for a city trying to redefine itself as a destination for more than just government workers. In recent years, downtown Sacramento has benefited from billions of dollars of development but has been rattled by rising crime, protests resulting in property damage and an economic drubbing caused by the pandemic.

Two people have died after at least 11 were shot overnight in Pittsburgh's East Allegheny neighborhood, officials said early Sunday morning.

The Pittsburgh Public Safety Department did not specify how the two people died.

"There are also several injuries from individuals escaping gunfire," the department said in a tweet. "Police are gathering evidence at multiple crime scenes."

Police earlier said as many as 10 people were shot but later updated that an 11th gunshot victim showed up at a hospital. The person's condition was not known, officials said.

Earlier the department said at least three of the injuries were in critical.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
