3 mins read


Police were searching for a motive and suspects Monday after a deadly Easter weekend shooting at a Pittsburgh party left two teens dead and at least eight other people wounded.

More than 200 people, many underage, were inside an Airbnb rental when the shooting occurred early Sunday morning, Pittsburgh police said. More than 90 rounds were fired during the shooting, according to gunshot detection system ShotSpotter, and police believe the number could be higher.

Late Sunday, the two teens were identified as Jaiden Brown and Mathew Steffy-Ross, both 17, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s office.

No arrests were immediately reported and police did not comment on a possible motive. Pittsburgh Police Chief Scott Schubert decried the number of illegal guns in the city during a Sunday press conference.

This is the short-term rental property where police say a shooting took place at a house party in Pittsburgh early Sunday morning, April 17, 2022.

Bullet casings indicate multiple weapons were used at the scene, and Schubert said multiple witnesses have come forward to help police with their investigation.

“This is our priority and we’re not going to sleep until we get who did this,” Schubert said. “This shouldn’t have happened and we’re sick about it and we’re going to do everything we can to get those responsible for it.”
