(Newser) – School officials say three male students were shot outside a Pittsburgh high school today, but their injuries don't appear to be life threatening. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that police took six people, including a child, in for questioning after surrounding a city house following the shooting. "We have a handle on what appears to be an isolated, a targeted incident," said Mayor Luke Ravenstahl.

A school district spokeswoman says the students were shot outside Brashear High School this afternoon as they walked to a vehicle they had taken to school earlier in the day, reports AP. Two were grazed in the head or neck area, and one was shot in the foot and arm. A police spokeswoman said the shooting might stem from a drug-related fight between some students last month. The school is about two miles south of downtown.
