3 Pennsylvania students shot; suspect calls it retaliation

(SOURCE)  PITTSBURGH — Three Pittsburgh high school students heading to their vehicle after classes ended were shot Wednesday, and another student was charged and told police he was retaliating for being beaten during a drug-related robbery last month at school, police said.

Anjohnito Willett Jr., 16, was charged as an adult and in custody late Wednesday on four counts each of attempted homicide, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment. He’s also charged with illegally possessing a gun as a juvenile.

Willett wounded three students and shot at a fourth as they were headed to a car to drive home after Brashear High School let out about 2:45 p.m., police Lt. Kevin Kraus said.

The wounds of the victims, all boys, appeared to be non-life-threatening, according to police spokeswoman Diane Richard. One’s head was grazed by a bullet, while another had a similar wound to his neck. The third boy was shot in the arm and foot and all three were in good or stable condition Wednesday night, Richard said.
