A fight at a baby shower in Pittsburgh’s Fairywood neighborhood on Saturday night resulted in the death of a 19-year-old man and the injuries of two others, according to the Pittsburgh Public Safety Department.
Following reports of six to seven gunshots ringing out where a private baby shower was taking place, officers were called to the Salvation Army’s Pittsburgh Westside and Worship Center on Broadhead Fording Road at 6:15 p.m., according to a statement released on Facebook by the Pittsburgh Public Safety Department.
When the police arrived, they found two male victims who had been shot. Both the Allegheny County medical examiner and the public safety department reported that while the other victim was sent to a nearby hospital in serious condition, Antoine Dorsey was declared dead at the site by emergency personnel.
According to authorities, a third victim exited the shower area and walked to a house on Glen Mawr Street. Police said he was found later on Saturday night and was brought to a hospital in stable condition.
Detectives from the Violent Crime Unit are still actively investigating the dispute, according to Pittsburgh Public Information Officer Cara Cruz, who spoke with ABC News. No arrests have been made as of yet.
In a statement about the shooting, the Salvation Army told ABC News on Sunday that it was “saddened to confirm that there was a tragic shooting at its Pittsburgh Westside Worship and Service Center yesterday evening.”
“The incident occurred during a private function being hosted at the Center and did not involve any members of The Salvation Army,” the group stated. “We pray for the victims of the shooting and their families and are saddened by this senseless act of violence in our church. The local authorities and The Salvation Army are working together to investigate the situation.”
“The Pittsburgh Westside Worship and Service Center will be closed until further notice,” it stated.
