Six Wounded In Clairton Shooting

Six people have been wounded in an early morning shooting in Clairton.

An emergency dispatch commander says the gunfire erupted around 3:30 a.m. Friday in the river town about 15 miles up the Monongahela River from Pittsburgh.

The police commander says one victim was airlifted and two victims were taken by ambulance to a trauma center. Three others reportedly went on their own to a local emergency room.

The commander says all were reported to be awake and breathing.

Investigators at the scene told local media the shooting happened at an unauthorized speakeasy-type business. They said all the victims were men in their early 20s.
