Two teenage girls sitting in a car parked near Temple University’s Liacouras Center, were shot last night after pepper spraying a man who reached into their vehicle. A report from NBC-10 PHILADELPHIA said the incident began when the girls were slowly driving by the area on Friday night while having a conversation with a group of young men who were walking.

The report went on to say, when the men began approaching the car, the teens tried to roll up their windows. The men allegedly began reaching into the car before they could roll the windows up. One of the girls in the backseat pepper sprayed the group. One of the men in the group reportedly opened fire at that point. The gunman fired six shots into the car.

A 17-year old girl sitting in the passenger’s seat was shot in the arm. The passenger in the backseat (who used pepper-spray) was shot in the back. Temple University Police Officers rushed the girls to Temple University Hospital. Both girls were last reported to be in stable condition.

A man, who police say was spotted with a firearm, was arrested in the area shortly after the shooting. Police also said a group of young men who had “obviously been pepper-sprayed” are also being detained.
