Two people have died and as many as 11 people were injured after being shot at a party in the East Allegheny neighbourhood of Pittsburgh, US, the Pittsburgh Public Safety department said in a series of tweets on Sunday.

As many as 10 gunshot victims are being treated at area hospitals, the authorities had said, before updating that a eleventh gunshot victim connected to the incident showed up at a local hospital and that the person's condition was not known.

The authorities' investigation revealed as many as 50 rounds were fired inside a short-term rental property where nearly 200 people had gathered at a large party, according to a statement.

The gunfire prompted some party-goers to jump out of windows, sustaining injuries such as broken bones and lacerations, the authorities said, adding that several more shots were fired outside the home.
