VIDEO: Pittsburgh School Shooting Likely Drug Relatedr

Pittsburgh Police say all three students in yesterday’s shooting outside of Brashear High School are expected to survive. They also said they thought the shooting likely occurred because suspected shooter Anjohnito Willet, 16, was seeking revenge for a drug-related robbery and assault that happened inside the school last month, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports.

Willet has been charged as an adult with four counts of attempted homicide, four counts of aggravated assault, four counts of recklessly endangering another person, and a gun violation.

Police said Willet shot 17-year-old Andrew Umphrey in the head, injuring him most severely; 15-year-old DaJour Jones in the left elbow and left foot; and 17-year-old Robert "Eugene" Minor in the head. DaJour has been discharged from Allegheny General Hospital. Willet also fired at—but did not hit—a fourth boy named Jaymon Eberhardt, according to the complaint. It is believed by investigators that the attack was a planned ambush. It occurred minutes after school had let out.
