Three students were shot near Pittsburgh's Brashear High School Wednesday afternoon as the school day came to an end, police said.

None of the injuries are believed to be life threatening, despite one 17-year-old being grazed in the head by a bullet, according to local CBS affiliate KDKA.

At a press conference, Pittsburgh Police Department spokeswoman Diane Richard added that the three victims were not speaking with police.

Six individuals have been taken into custody in connection with the shooting, according to KDKA.

Early media reports indicated that three individuals came out of the woods and opened fire.

"And all I heard is gunshots," Crystal Hendson, a senior at the school, told WPXI. "I thought it was just kids playing around. And then I heard my friends in the bathroom say 'there's [inaudible] on the ground and blood.'"

"I just never thought it would happen," she added. "There were just kids scattering everywhere."

Another student, who told WPXI she did not want to be identified, provided more details.

"All of a sudden we heard three gunshots," the student said. "Just everybody ran back to the school. We seen this kid get picked up, he was bleeding from the head. There was blood everywhere."

One student appeared to have live-tweeted her experience during the shooting:
