Woman wounded in shooting at football game dies

PITTSBURGH — One of three people wounded at a youth football game in Pittsburgh has died and police Chief Nate Harper says he expects officers to issue arrest warrants for those responsible soon.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner says 64-year-old Charlene Walters, of Verona, died Monday. An autopsy is set Tuesday, but authorities expect that will confirm she died of a gunshot wound to the abdomen she suffered on Saturday.

Two other people were wounded, a 33-year-old woman shot in the hand and a 27-year-old Wilkinsburg man who was critically wounded. Police believe he was the target of the shooters who are believed to have had an ongoing dispute with the man.

Police have yet to name any suspects or make any arrests.
