A 17-year-old boy was shot three times by police and killed while fleeing from a traffic stop in East Pittsburgh that followed a shooting in North Braddock Tuesday night, authorities said.

The teen's name has not officially been released, but the Woodland Hills School District confirmed he was a student and Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto identified him as Antwon Rose in a statement about the fatal shooting in East Pittsburgh, which is a separate borough from the city.

"I understand that any time a young person gets shot, there is a cause for outrage in some areas. However, I urge people in the community to give us time to conduct an objective investigation and gather facts," Allegheny County police Superintendent Coleman McDonough said at a news conference Wednesday. County police said the first shooting was reported around 8:20 p.m. Officers from North Braddock responded to calls on Kirkpatrick Avenue and found a 22-year-old victim, who was taken to a hospital and later released.

Witnesses reported that a vehicle was seen leaving the area. An East Pittsburgh police officer saw a car on Grandview Avenue that matched the description and had ballistics damage to the rear window, McDonough said.

"He stopped the vehicle and attempted to take the driver into custody. At that time, two other men in the vehicle exited and fled on foot," McDonough said. "The East Pittsburgh police officer fired at the fleeing suspects. One of those individuals is a 17-year-old male. He was transported to (UPMC) McKeesport Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 9:19 p.m." Posted By Ghost
