A 7-year old girl who was sitting inside of her home, was one of three victims hit by gunfire during a shooting in the Kensington section of the city last night. Police say the shooting possibly stemmed from an argument over something as small as a parking spot.

A 6 ABC Action News report said the incident happened on the 2900 block of Rutledge Street at around 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday night.

At least 14-bullets were reportedly fired on the block during the shooting. A 7-year old girl was struck by a bullet that entered the front door and hit the child in the foot. She was taken to St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children where she was last reported to be in stable condition.

A 64-year old man was shot in the face, and another man reported to be in his 40’s, was shot twice in the chest. Both victims were rushed to Temple University Hospital where both men were last reported to be in extremely critical condition.

Police said they aren’t sure if the two adult victims were participants in the shooting or just victims hit by stray bullets. Police believe a minor incident may have sparked the shooting that left three people injured.

“It could be over something as silly as where a car is parked, so that’s just absolutely ridiculous. Should’ve never happened”, said Deputy Commissioner, Frank Vanore.
