A broad-daylight shooting left seven people, including three kids, wounded in Philadelphia Monday afternoon. This comes after a shooting this past Saturday night that wounded 10.
Police said that the victims — including a 3-year-old girl, an 11-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy — were shot on Hilton Street near F in Kensington, just off the intersection of Kensington and Allegheny avenues, about 2:30 p.m.
The other victims are a 31-year-old woman, a 47-year-old man, a 25-year-old man and a 23-year-old man, according to police.
Four of the victims reportedly suffered graze wounds, and the three additional victims were taken to Temple University Hospital, where two were in critical condition and one was stable, according to police. A shotgun was recovered by police at the scene, but no arrests have been made.
Police say a shotgun was used by the gunman, who they say fled on foot. He is described as a black male, 5’7″, between the ages of 25-30 years old, stocky built, wearing a red/white tank top, and a black handkerchief on his face. The weapon was recovered. Inspector Michael McCarrick says the scene looks like the gunman was shooting at random:
“ We don’t have anything from a police stand point that we can say A led to B. The investigators are trying to find that out. We are hoping that we can get some community involvement here.”
There’s no word on a motive at this time as an investigation continues. But the media won’t report this once again. Share and expose this and add to national conversation.
