Here's from a local source:


Multiple victims in Western Psych shooting

Two people are dead, including a person who began shooting inside Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of UPMC shortly before 2 p.m., according to Paul Wood, a spokesman for UPMC, who was briefed by police at the scene.

At least five additional people have been shot at Western Psychiatric. The building has been secured, Mr. Wood said, and earlier reports of a second shooter were incorrect. All the injured victims were taken to UPMC Presbyterian , he said.

interesting that a 'zone 4' officer said about the second shooter. What does this mean zone 4? You think it could be a false flag if two shooters were involved? Was it just a lone mental case (this time an actual mental case in a mntal institute)

Yes indeed, many prayers for them.

Sadly, is it possible that TPTB have expanded their agenda by using information from the Montauk Project.
I find it quite bizarre that a milk man suddenly goes bazerk and shoots to death several Amish children. Or any of the other abnormal shootings that involve irrational behavior from previously "normal people." Could it be plausible that TPTB want more shootings to occur in order for them to strip the citizens of firearms? In the UK, fire arms are prohibited. Has that decreased the fire bombings, stabbings, or murders in the UK or elsewhere? I think there is more to the story to these shooters, than we could possibly know.
Again, my prayers are out to these people.

I think you will find more than 95% of all rampage shootings have been from individuals that have been "treated."
Dig.
The rabbit hole is deep.

found this on CNN, kind of confusing


www.cnn.com...
NEW: The shooter is among the two people killed, the medical center says via Twitter

NEW: There is no second shooter or hostage situation, as had been reported
Some injured are in UPMC Presbyterian's ER, the medical center says via Twitter
(CNN) -- Two people died and seven are being treated for injuries after a shooting Thursday afternoon inside the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center's Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, the center said on Twitter, citing police.


They are making it sound like it is over but there is no news on it beyond this. like if it is over, who the shooter was and how it ended.

Interesting how all these random rage shooting incidents start out with multiple shooters before settling quickly on just one lone gunman.

www.huffingtonpost.com... 949
(University of Pittsburgh Medical Center spokesman Paul)Wood said media reports about a possible second gunman and a hostage situation at the clinic or at UPMC Presbyterian hospital were unfounded. "There was no hostage situation ever," Wood said. "There was a rumor out there that there was a second gunman. That, we believe, was never true."

twitter.com...#!/search/PittTweet
"Just got word of multiple shooters on campus at @PittTweet and various injuries."

www.wpxi.com...
Police told Channel 11's Rick Earle that initial reports indicated that a second gunman may have been holding people hostage inside of the hospital.

--------------------

Also, it seems the FBI is always on the scene for some reason:

www.post-gazette.com...
Police were called shortly before 2 p.m. Scores of city police officers arrived and were reinforced by FBI agents, sheriff's deputies, state police troopers and members of the South Hills SWAT team.

Shootings get very confusing very quickly, most of the witnesses actually witness very little when the whole thing starts. A handful of people will see the shooting start and the rest of the people hear most of what happened and then only see the aftermath.
So a bunch of people see the shooter, they get in contact with police/security (whatever) and describe the shooter. Another group of people will see someone running away and assume he is the shooter and often they will see a security guard or a cop and assume he is the shooter because they are the only person seen with a gun. And then those witnesses describe that guy they saw. So you have two different descriptions and at the end of it all once they get all the statements they see that only one person was actually shooting and the ballistics info back that up

Not been a lot of updates after this oddly but the latest is that the mayor says shooter at university psychiatric clinic had two guns and was killed in exchange of bullets with police

guns used where semi-automatic
And the persons that where wounded are all expected to survive,

It doesn't sound like just one gunman to me.

From a news reporter on scene as it was happening:

www.wpxi.com...
"Yeah Peggy, multiple police sources are now telling us this has turned into a hostage situation. My sources are telling me--my police sources are telling me--that they have received three phone calls from people inside Western Psych claiming that they are now being held hostage by two men with guns. ... But again, the very latest information is that this has now evolved into a hostage situation. .... We understand from our police sources that they have received three phone calls from people inside Western Psych claiming at this moment that they are being held hostage by two men armed with guns. ..... Now we are hearing the possibility that there may be two to three shooters involved in this incident. ...Again we are getting all this information from our police sources. ... "
