A 13-year old girl was reportedly struck by a stray bullet during a shooting in Southwest Philadelphia early this morning.
A 6 ABC Action News report said the shooting happened on the 2600 block of South 65th Street at around 1 a.m. on Tuesday morning.
First arriving officers at the scene reported finding a 13-year old victim inside of the home. She told police she had been at the house visiting family when the gunfire erupted.
“We know over 10-shots went through the living room window, and the girl was standing right by the living room window, a few feet away, and she was struck in the shoulder”, said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector, Scott Small.
Police said more than 30-shots were fired into the home that had around 10-occupants inside at the time of the shooting. Police Inspectors believe a 20-year old was being chased, and ran into the home, where he reportedly knows some of the people inside. According to witnesses, a dark-colored, four-door sedan pulled up to the intersection, two males jumped out of the vehicle and opened fire.
“We believe this male in his late 20’s was the intended target, and when he ran inside the house, that’s when the vehicle pulled up and began firing numerous shots into the house”, Small added.
The 13-year old victim was taken to a nearby hospital by police where she was last reported to be in stable condition. The man in his 20’s was reportedly being questioned by police. A possible motive for the shooting was not reported. No suspects have been named and no arrests have been made at this time.
