Horrific video shows moment of mass shooting that killed two juveniles and injured nine others


A horrific video shows the moment hundreds of partygoers fled the scene of an Airbnb early Sunday morning as shots were fired.

The video, posted online by KDKA editor Ed Thompson, shows the underage partiers in an argument before one man yells, ‘He’s got a gun, he’s got a gun get the f*** down.’

He could be heard urging others to flee the scene as he, too, runs down the stairs of an apartment at the intersection of Suismon Street and Madison Avenue in Pittsburgh’s North Side at around 12.30am, stumbling over others, as the unknown gunman started shooting .

‘They’re shooting, oh my God,’ the videographer says.

Police say there were more than 200 people inside the Airbnb at the time, many of whom were underage, when multiple gunmen opened fire, killing two teenage boys and injuring eight others. Three are now in critical condition.

As many as 50 shots were fired inside the apartment, authorities say, prompting some attendees to jump out the windows. At least two of those partygoers suffered broken bones and lacerations from the jump, according to WTAE.

But officials said at a news conference Sunday afternoon they now believe there were a total of 90 shots fired in what Police Chief Scott Schubert described as a ‘very chaotic scene.’

Pittsburgh Zone 1 officers told WTAE that they first responded to the scene early on Easter Sunday when they received multiple ShotSpotter alerts.

More shots were fired by the time police arrived on the scene of the 800 block of Suismon Street in the city’s Deutschtown neighborhood.

An investigation into the shooting is ongoing, Pittsburgh police said, and are collecting evidence from as many as eight separate crime scenes spanning a few blocks around where the shooting occurred.

Photos posted by WTAE reporter Ashley Zilka show cars with broken windows and an apparently lost sneaker outside of the apartment.

Across the street, TribLive reports, a shattered second-story window hung open, and less than a block away, a Subaru Legacy was smeared with blood.

Shell casings from rifles and pistols were also found at the scene.

Authorities said EMS crews transported several gunshot victims to local hospitals, while others found private rides. Two of the victims died from the injuries they sustained while at the hospital, but Commander John Fisher said most of the victims are in stable condition.

Of those who died, Schubert said, one was only 14 years old.

It remains unclear who rented the Airbnb, but TribLive reports, Allegheny County real estate records listed the owner of the property as 900 North Group LLC.

No information about any potential suspects has been released, and the investigation into the shooting is ongoing.

‘It is our top priority to find out who did this,’ Schubert said at a noon press conference, adding ‘We’re not going to sleep until we get this.’

Authorities are asking witnesses to come forward with any photos or video from the scene, and are asking anyone with information to call Major Crimes at (412) 323-7161.
