The two teenagers killed in an Easter Sunday shooting in Pittsburgh have been identified.
Mathew Steffy-Ross, 17, of Pitcairn, and Jaiden Brown, 17, were both transported to hospitals where they were later pronounced dead, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's office.
Woodland Hills High School issued a statement of sympathy to Brown's family, saying it would do all it could to support students and families in light of Brown's death.

Grace Non Traditional Christian Academy confirmed Steffy-Ross was a student at the school. "Mathew Steffy-Ross was a senior who was kind, respectful, and considerate of others," CEO Terrie Suica-Reed said in a statement to Action News 4. "He loved music and had a promising future. Tragically, both Mathew's and Jaiden's life were unfairly cut short by another senseless act of violence."
At least 11 people, including the two who died, were shot early Easter morning in Pittsburgh's East Allegheny neighborhood, according to local authorities. Police responded to multiple gunfire alerts coming from a large party, where more than 200 people were gathered.
“As many as 50 rounds were fired inside, prompting some party-goers to jump out the windows, sustaining injuries such as broken bones and lacerations,” the city of Pittsburgh said in a news release on Sunday. “Several more shots were fired outside the home.”
