Three teenage boys were wounded on Wednesday after shots were fired outside Brashear High School in Pittsburgh, an emergency medical services chief said.

Paramedics took the three to two separate hospitals, and their injuries were not considered life-threatening, said Mark Bocian, the Pittsburgh EMS chief.

One was grazed in the head, one was grazed in the side and the third was shot in the ankle, Bocian said.

Police were still looking for the shooter or shooters, Bocian said.

Police and canine units were searching the nearby woods for suspects, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported, citing an Allegheny County dispatch supervisor.

Brashear High School is the city’s largest high school by enrollment with 1,416 students, according to the Pittsburgh Public School district.

Part of Brashear also houses South Hills Middle School, which has 580 students, the Post-Gazette reported.
