PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The final three victims of the mass shooting in Wilkinsburg will be laid to rest this week.
A viewing for Brittany Powell, Chanetta Powell and Jerry Michael Shelton is scheduled for Monday night from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at The Lighthouse Cathedral in Saint Clair. All three are scheduled to be laid to rest at the same church on Tuesday at 11 a.m.
Brittany, Chanetta and Jerry were killed when two gunmen opened fire during a backyard barbecue at a home on Franklin Avenue. In all, six people were killed: five adults and one unborn child. The unborn baby will be buried with mother Chanetta Powell.
“We’ve been saying from the beginning there were six victims, and not five. This little precious baby lost his life as well,” said Pastor Maurice Trent.
Trent said that the mass shooting has inspired Pittsburgh to take a stand.
“Pittsburgh citizens have spoken loudly to say this kind of crime being perpetrated against a family is not going to be tolerated,” he said.
Police are still investigating the shooting, but so far, no one has been arrested. Authorities say they have received numerous tips from the public about the shooting, and are following up on each tip.
The Allegheny County Police Department, The Borough of Wilkinsburgh Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) are all involved in the investigation. Anyone with additional information about the shooting is asked to call the ATF Hotline at: 1-800-ATF-GUNS (1-800-283-4867), or send them an email at: ATFTips@atf.gov.
