PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh police say two men have been fatally shot in a neighborhood known for drug trafficking.

Police didn’t immediately release the names of the victims found slain about 10:15 a.m.

Police say ShotSpotter, an automatic gunfire detection system, reported five shots in the area, which is why the officers responded.

Police spokeswoman Sonya Toler says it’s unclear whether the shootings are related to several drug arrests Monday in the same Larimer neighborhood where the men were slain.
