New York City (AFP) – Three students were shot outside a high school on Wednesday, with police saying the victims had sustained wounds but that their injuries were not life-threatening.

The attack came just down the street from Brashear High School, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania after classes had finished for the day.

The building was placed on lockdown after one injured boy made his way back to school to get help and was spotted by a teacher.

“We don’t know if there were multiple shooters at this time,” police spokeswoman Diane Richard told reporters, saying the injured were not in danger. “No one is talking at this time.”

The injured boys are believed to be aged 17 and 16, Richard said. One was shot in the leg and foot, one had a bullet graze his head and the third was grazed in the neck and head, she told WTAE news.

According to RealClear Politics' polling average, Biden currently enjoys a 4-point lead in Pennsylvania, a 6.4-point lead in Michigan, and a 6.7-point lead in Wisconsin.
