Default Gunman Kills 4 at L.A. Fitness in Bridgeville

OMFG - the loonies are everywhere! Latest report is that 4, including the gunman, are dead, possibly 15 others shot and of those, 5 women who were in the aerobics class in critical condition at Mercy Hospital. My heart and prayers go out to these innocent victims. Great Southern Shopping Center is about 8 miles from my house. It's a crying freakin' shame that you can't even work out without having to fear for your life.

Here is the latest:

http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com/...52/detail.html

BRIDGEVILLE, Pa. -- Four people are confirmed dead after a shooting at the LA Fitness gym in Bridgeville, emergency officials told WTAE Channel 4 Action News. Witnesses described seeing people covered in blood in a shooting that may have involved more than one location.

Shortly after 8:15 p.m., dozens of police cars and ambulances were called to the gym at the Great Southern Shopping Center at 1155 Washington Pike.

Emergency officials said as many as 15 people may have been involved, but their conditions were not immediately known. WTAE Channel 4 Action News has received reports that victims were being transported to St. Clair Hospital.

Witnesses told a WTAE Channel 4 Action News crew first at the scene that a man unrecognized by the gym's staff turned off lights and shot people in a Latin dance class in the aerobics center at the time of the shooting.

A woman in the class at the time of the shooting, identified as Nicole, told WTAE Channel 4 Action News that the class had started about 10 minutes before the gunfire.

She said about 30 people -- all women -- were in the class when "a middle-aged white male walked into the class. He had a big gym bag."

"He looked out of place in a class full of women," according to the witness, who said the man put his bag down, turned the lights off and opened fire.

The woman said she ran out of the gym as quickly as she could and got into a stranger's car to escape the gunfire.

WTAE Channel 4's Shannon Perrine was told the gym was well attended at the time of the shooting, possibly by as many as 100 people. Witnesses said people inside the gym took off running amid the gunshots.

Former WTAE Channel 4 Action News photographer Gary O'Data said at 9:10 p.m. that the entire shopping center was shut down. He reported seeing as many as 15 ambulances and at least 20 police cars. Clerks at neighboring stores told WTAE Channel 4 Action News that they locked their doors as a precaution.

"They have the back, front and all four corners of the building cordoned off," WTAE Channel 4's Scott Stiller reported from Sky 4.

Stiller reported seeing a police response from Bridgeville, Scott Township, Collier Township, Upper St. Clair and Mount Lebanon, among others. Allegheny County police and officials from the Medical Examiner's Office were also called to the scene.

The gym had just opened last summer after a large fire gutted a portion of the shopping center.

WTAE Channel 4 Action News crews are at the scene, and information continues to come into the newsroom.

That's scary. Nobody's safe anywhere anymore.

I just heard about this just recently and I'm in great shock. Thoughts and Prayers to the victims and their families and may those that passed away enjoy a greater place away from this earth.

Just heard on WTAE that the instructor of the Latin dance class was one of those shot by the gunman and she was/is pregnant. No one knows yet if she is one of the fatalities.

There are unconfirmed reports that this was as a result of a love triangle.

Also according to a KDKA Report, it appears that the shooter was recently dumped by his girlfriend and shot her along with others in the club.
