A 17-year-old male is in critical condition, and a 19-year-old suffered a graze wound.
Police say they have no motive right now, but the shooting was likely not random.
“I heard about 9 gun shots when I was in bible study,” one witness said.
That witness did not want to be identified, the man says once the gunfire stopped, he ran out of the Bibleway Baptist Church to see if anyone had been shot.
“I just saw a crowd gathered at the Chinese store, and we called 911 and the police came and took the guy to the hospital,” he said.
The evidence markers illustrate the violence that spilled out on 52nd and Master streets Wednesday night.
Ten shots were fired from two separate guns.
The teen was shot twice in the leg and stomach.
The victim’s friend told Action News off camera. “I saw him lying on the ground holding his wounds. I looked him straight in the eye, and he looked at me, and I couldn’t do anything to help him.”
Investigators are looking at surveillance video from the Hong Fa restaurant to pin down the gunmen.
Philadelphia Police Lt. Johnny Walker said, “It looks like he’s hit and then runs into the restaurant for safety.
It’s not clear if the teen knew who shot him.
“The way they come up on him, appears to be him or either someone that was out here with him they were shooting at, but he takes the bullet,” Lt. Walker said.
Police say the second gunshot victim, the 19-year-old, was taken to Lankanau Hospital with minor injuries.
