PITTSBURGH — Law enforcement authorities have taken a total of six people into custody in connection with a Wednesday afternoon shooting outside a high school in Pittsburgh.

According to the Associated Press, a police spokeswoman said the shooting, which took place after classes ended at Brashear High School, may have stemmed from a drug-related dispute between students last month.

The shooting injured three male students, ages 16 and 17. None were seriously wounded, but the victims didn’t immediately cooperate with investigators, the AP said.

Officials at Brashear locked down the school briefly, but students were released to their parents about 90 minutes after the incident.
