Police ID gunman in deadly Pitt clinic shooting


PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pittsburgh police say they've identified a gunman who killed one person and shot several others at a University of Pittsburgh psychiatric clinic.

They say he was armed with two handguns traced to Texas, one of which had been reported stolen.

Police still don't have a motive for Thursday's shooting by 30-year-old John Shick, who's believed to have lived in Pittsburgh's Shadyside neighborhood near the hospital.

Police confirmed his name at a Friday news conference in which they released a more detailed description of the shooting. They say it's too early for them to have determined if Shick has any criminal history or mental health problems.

Police confirmed what they'd previously believed was true: At least one University of Pittsburgh police officer shot and killed Shick to end the rampage.
