PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Two potential suspects have been found after a weekend shooting at a local football game left two wounded and one dead.

Shots were fired at a peewee football game at Obama Academy field in East Liberty Saturday, wounding three people.

One of the wounded, 64-year-old Charlene Walters, died Monday night from the gunfire. Walters was watching her grandson play in the game.

After that, officials said the suspect or suspects involved would be charged with murder.

Community leaders also met Tuesday to address the violence in the area – this was the second incident at that field.

Pittsburgh Police Chief Nate Harper said surveillance video from the field has been helpful in finding suspects.

Harper said he expects charges to be filed within the next few days.
