Pittsburgh Target 4 People Stabbed Inside Store.
Pittsburgh Authorities are reporting that 4 people have been stabbed inside Target located in the east Liberty section of the city. One of the victims is a 16-year-old girl who is reportedly in critical condition.
Witnesses say the assailant used what appeared to be a long kitchen knife. The incident happened on the 2nd floor of the store. The attacks seemed to be random. Another victim was found outside the store on Penn Avenue.
Witnesses say the 16-year-old girl was stabbed twice in the chest. Another man’s face was sliced, and another had his finger cut off.
A store patron, Chris Jones, was on the first floor when he heard screaming on the floor above. He ran upstairs to see if he could help. By the time he arrived the male suspect was “being pummeled by a bat and fists.” “He was getting torn up and I think he deserved it,” Jones said.
The other injuries are all minor. A policeman is being attended to after being attacked by pepper spray.
Police then fired a Taser at the man, before taking him into custody.
