Richard Ford, the commander of the department's major crimes division, said during a late-night news conference that the shooting was "not just one confined area."

Ford said two of the victims were found inside a bus shelter while another was found in a park, according to the Pittsburg Post-Gazette.

"We want to make sure that we don't miss anything," Ford said. "We'll take our time, we'll do it the right way, and that way we won't miss anything."

Further details about the shooting were not immediately known.
