The shooting took place at 00:30, local time, at an Airbnb rental in the East Allegheny neighborhood, also known as Deutschtown, on Pittsburgh´s North Shore. In a statement, the police authorities said that around 200 people, many of them minors, were at the party.

As many as 50 shots were fired inside the facility, causing some partygoers to jump out of windows, suffering injuries such as broken bones and lacerations,they said, adding that shots were also heard outside the house.

The deceased were juvenile males, the department said. Emergency personnel took some of the shooting victims to local hospitals, and others arrived independently.

Detectives are currently processing evidence at eight separate crime scenes, interviewing witnesses and reviewing video footage.

Authorities have not reported on whether they apprehended any suspects, but according to local press, many young people fled the area, including the would-be shooters.

So far in 2022, the United States has recorded more than 107 mass shootings amid a surge in gun violence.
