Students at Brashear High School in Pittsburgh will return to school Thursday, less than a day after a shooting outside the school injured three students.
The shooting happened just blocks away from the campus Wednesday. Investigators said the 16-year-old charged in the shooting planned the ambush as retaliation to a fight that happened at the school last month.
A.J. Willet was taken into custody shortly after the incident. Channel 11 News was there as he was taken from Pittsburgh police headquarters to the Allegheny County Jail late Wednesday night.
As of Thursday morning, two of the victims remain in stable condition at UPMC Mercy Hospital and a third victim is being treated at Allegheny General Hospital. All are expected to be OK

Just some street justice being delivered for a prior beating and robbery. Not a one of them old enough to vote (thank God!) Also thankfully they were lousy shots.
Sad, tragic waste of young men's lives.
Maybe the feds have learned how to hack the liberals’s Facebook sites and implant subliminal messages hidden in the background to influence their minion’s vehavior to make them become shooters. Its not that hard to hack email accounts or Facebook if you have the right tools...: )
We must eliminate “Gun Free Zones”.
They all too often become killing fields.
I can’t see that it would hurt to have one qualified person in every school in the country being armed.
School shootings would cease very quickly I should think.
There certainly is a great deal of violence among certain groups in our country. But, due to political correctness, we’re not supposed to identify such groups. Or when such incidents as this happen, they disappear from the national news, because they don’t fit the liberal narrative.
This school is located in a heavily wooded area.
The shooters hid in the woods and came out to ambush their victims as class was being dismissed. Gun Free Zone policies were irrelevant, I think.
I heard a couple of the dogs in my neighborhood fighting outside the other day. Not sure if any of them were injured or killed. But I don’t see that in my local / national media either. And rightfully so. They are animals. Who really cares? They will do what they will do.
“”A modified lockdown means that only students, staff and visitors with a scheduled appointment will be able to enter the school building, Pittsburgh Public Schools superintendent Linda Lane said.”
I had sorta hoped we would do the same thing in the US with respect to our borders rights after 9/11. No such luck.
I respectfully disagree-—if the criminals knew that there were armed personnel in the school, chances are much higher that they would pick another target.
Whether it’s in a wooded area or not, insane people are sane enough to go where they think they won’t meet any resistance.
The Pittsburgh Public Schools security are considered a “police force” under Pennsylvania’s Private Police Act.
Whether they are armed or not at this point I do not know.
Though Pittsburgh has schools much rougher than Brashear, so if they aren’t I’d be shocked.
Not far away Upper St. Clair School District is attempting to arm their security.
I continue to say that “gun free zones” should be eliminated—and replaced with well trained, armed personnel.
If the Pittsburg Public Schools security are armed, that’s a good thing. However, if there is not one of these security personnel on duty in every school in the district, or at least if that’s not what the public perceives, then they are more or less useless, IMHO.
