Gunfire at a psychiatric clinic at the University of Pittsburgh killed two people and injured seven others this afternoon. Police reported one of the dead was the gunman. It was unclear whether the wounded people were patients, employees, or visiting family members at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Police have not speculated about the shooter's motive. Local media reported that a campus police officer shot him after he opened fire on the first floor, an area with tight security where new patients get admitted.
The clinic, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, is located in the city's Oakland neighborhood, a couple of miles east of downtown, and is affiliated with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and one of several affiliated hospitals adjacent to the university campus. Other schools are nearby, including Carnegie Mellon, Carlow, and Chatham universities. (Read more Pittsburgh stories.)
