GENE RANDALL, CNN ANCHOR: I'm Gene Randall in Washington. We've been told that four or five people have been shot at two fast food restaurants in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania, outside Pittsburgh, this morning.
No word on the conditions of those who were wounded. Authorities tell CNN, they know where the gunman is, and that they have sealed off the area. We're told he is armed with a handgun.
Once again, these are pictures from near the scene, four or five people having been shot this morning in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania.
Police, obviously, were trying to usher people to safety in the area, and once again, we are told they know where the gunman is.
On the phone with us is Roy Dansra (ph), who we understand was in the area and might be able to shed some light on the situation there.
Roy, can you hear me?
UNIDENTIFIED WITNESS: Yes.
RANDALL: What can you tell us about what went on there?
UNIDENTIFIED WITNESS: OK, I'm the administrator of a nursing home located across the street from McDonald's, and I believe the incident took place over at both the McDonald's, and I believe the Burger King, I'm not sure about the Burger King. And I believe the gunman ran from the police and is held up in a building adjacent to ours, that building was evacuated and those employees are currently being housed in our building.
We have both entrances and exits sealed off. And just awaiting the outcome of the situation.
RANDALL: And Roy, what are the police doing at the moment?
UNIDENTIFIED WITNESS: Again, they have cordoned off the area, and at this point in time, are I believe trying to coax the individual out.
RANDALL: Did all this happen in a hurry? UNIDENTIFIED WITNESS: From what I understand, and by all means I was not an eyewitness, he went from one restaurant to another and then the police chase incident.
RANDALL: Roy Densra in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania. Thank you very much for telling us what you know.
We will keep you up to date on this story as developments warrant. Right now, we go back to "BURDEN OF PROOF."
