The authorities are investigating the circumstances that led to the deaths of three men and the hospitalization of four others in Pittsburgh on Saturday night, all of whom were wearing orange paper bands on their wrists, the city said.
Chris Togneri, a spokesman for the Department of Public Safety, said the authorities had received a report at 3:20 a.m. of a man found on the street who required medical help.
Nearly an hour later, a second medical call came about a man in the elevator of an apartment building about two blocks away from where the first man had been found, he said.
At about 5:40 a.m., the authorities found five men inside an apartment, two of whom were dead. The man found in the elevator also died, he said.
