At least 5 killed in 'ambush-style' attack outside Pittsburgh

- At least five people were killed and three others were wounded late Wednesday when gunmen ambushed a backyard party in a Pittsburgh suburb, officials said.

Allegheny County Lt. Andrew Schurman said that four women and one man were killed in the shooting at a house on Franklin Avenue in Wilkinsburg, just east of downtown Pittsburgh. Schurman said four of the victims were killed on the home's back porch. A fifth victim died from her injuries at a local hospital.

Allegheny County police said two injured men were in critical condition early Thursday, while a woman was in stable condition.

Schurman described the gathering at the home as "a backyard party or cookout of some sort", but did not elaborate further. He said gunshots came from two distinct locations but police don't believe anyone at the party fired back.
