LEXINGTON, Ky. (11/13/13) – The Associated Press is reporting that three students were shot outside a Pittsburgh, Penn. high school, according to school officials.

The students were shot outside Brashear High School Wednesday afternoon, said Pittsburgh school district spokeswoman Ebony Pugh, adding that the students were walking to a vehicle they'd all taken to school earlier in the day.

Pugh said the injuries do not appear to be life-threatening. Two were grazed in the head, while one was shot in both the foot and arm. The victims were nearby the school, but not on school property. One was found inside the school, but either ran inside the school or was taken there by emergency officials.

As of now, the identity of the shooter is unclear.
