(Pittsburgh) -- A 17-year-old Pittsburgh boy has been shot and injured as he waited for his morning bus - the third student from his school shot this week.

Officials say the boy is a junior at Woodland Hills High School and was shot Friday. His name hasn't been released.

Sixteen-year-old Jerame Turner was also a junior at Woodland Hills when he was shot and killed Monday night.

A 13-year-old was also shot and is expected to survive. It's not clear where he went to school.

And 14-year-old Augustus Gray was shot Saturday and died this week. He was an eighth grader at Woodland Hills Junior/Senior High School.

Pittsburgh Police Chief Scott Schubert says the violence is unacceptable.

The school superintendent says the community must come together to stop it.
