First responding officers reported finding a 19-year old man inside of a home on the block. He’d reportedly been shot outside on the porch, but had managed to run inside of the house after the shooting. He was taken to Penn-Presbyterian Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police found an 18-year old man around 200 feet away from the home. The victim was in an alleyway right across the street from the house the 19-year old was found in. He was taken to the hospital, where he was also pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

After a preliminary investigation and witness interviews, police believe the 18-year old walked onto the front porch and shot the 19-year old. Seconds later, someone that had been inside of the house, came out firing. The 19-year old was struck and killed.

The 18 & 19 year old victims, both were reportedly shot multiple times, even though there were reportedly only two shell casings found at the scene. Police said there were at least 7 people inside of the home at the time of the shooting, including a small child.

No suspects have been named and no arrests have been made at this time.
