Three females and a male were shot after a fight that occurred in the 5600 block of Broad Street around 9 p.m., police said.
“There was a large fight, some sort of fight or argument in the street, and it escalated and then someone began firing shots,” said Zone 5 Commander Jason Lando.

A Zone 5 police officer applied a tourniquet to the leg of one of the shooting victims on the scene.
It's unclear what led to the fight, but Pittsburgh police Chief Scott Schubert said there's no reason to believe it's gang related.
"We're investigating that to figure out where the gun came from and what actually occurred. It's disturbing any time anyone pulls out a gun during an incident," Schubert said.
Schubert said the community has been cooperating in the investigation, but he wouldn't elaborate on where it stands at this point.
All four victims are in stable condition.
