MOUNT OLIVER, Pa. — A triple shooting during a fight left one person dead early Wednesday morning in Mount Oliver, police said.

Allegheny County 911 was alerted to the shooting on Brownsville Road shortly after 12 a.m.

When first responders got to the scene, they found a 29-year-old man dead and two other men shot in the legs, police said. The surviving victims, ages 27 and 28, were taken to a hospital, where one was listed in critical condition and the other in stable condition.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the deceased victim as Robert P. Johnson, 29, of Pittsburgh.
