The University of Pittsburgh will not accept a bequest of $225,000 from George Sodini, who opened fire in a health club this month, killing three women and injuring nine before killing himself, The Tribune-Review reported. Sodini was a graduate of Pitt and the bequest became public this week. But Pitt announced that it believed any available funds from the bequest should go to victims of the shootings and their families.
