Shooting challenges downtown Sacramento's rebuilding efforts

  Shooting challenges downtown Sacramento's rebuilding efforts SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The mass shooting that police say was a gun battle between rival gangs that left six dead and 12 wounded earlier this month shook the downtown core of California's capital — and created another challenge for a city trying to redefine itself as a destination for more than just government workers. In recent years, downtown Sacramento has benefited from billions of dollars of development but has been rattled by rising crime, protests resulting in property damage and an economic drubbing caused by the pandemic.

At least two people have died after a mass shooting in Pittsburgh, police said.

"Multiple shots have been fired in East Allegheny with several gunshot victims," Pittsburgh Public Safety wrote in a tweet in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The department urged people to avoid the area of E Ohio Street from Madison Avenue to Cedar Avenue. "This is a very active scene," it added.

In an update, the department wrote that about 10 people were receiving treatment for gunshot wounds.

"As many as 10 gunshot victims are being treated at area hospitals, three of them critical. Police are gathering evidence at multiple crime scenes," the tweet said.

In another update, the department confirmed that two people had died.

"Two victims have been pronounced deceased. There are also several injuries from individuals escaping gunfire," the tweet said. "The investigation is ongoing."

The department later confirmed that an 11th gunshot victim linked to the same shooting had showed up at a local hospital, but no details about their condition were known.

Pittsburgh Public Safety have been contacted for comment.

  Brooklyn subway shooting is not being investigated as terrorism 'at this time.' Here's why. The Brooklyn subway attack renews questions about why crimes like mass shootings aren't immediately categorized as terrorism.But New York officials on Tuesday said they weren't investigating the shooting as terrorism "at this time," renewing questions about why crimes like mass shootings aren't always or immediately categorized as terrorism and how legal definitions don't completely capture the way crimes are experienced by communities.

In a statement earlier this month, Pittsburgh Police Chief Scott Schubert said he was "profoundly troubled" by a recent spate of violent crimes in the city.

"While the number of violent crimes has been rising around the United States since 2020 and the onset of the pandemic, this is an oversimplified explanation. This is unacceptable in Pittsburgh. This is not reflective of the city we know and love. People are clearly hurting," Schubert said.

He added that officers "will investigate all crimes, but we are also there to help, listen, and connect people with valuable social services before a crisis occurs. We urge citizens to utilize Pittsburgh Police as a resource. We are here to help.

"We need to do this together. We need to look out for one another and take care of one another. Only then will we begin to heal the deep trauma that is at the root of violence."
