At least seven people, including a two-year-old and eleven-year-old child, were injured in West Philadelphia after a shotgun-wielding attacker fired into a street picnic, local police said. The children were hospitalized in critical condition.
The report comes almost simultaneously with news from a block party in Detroit, where one person was killed and 9 injured in a shooting on the same Saturday evening.
It was not immediately clear why the West Philadelphia shooter targeted the block party on Ogden Street, according to local police.
“It looks like they just randomly fired down the street and hit anyone in their way,” NBC 10 Philadelphia quoted Philadelphia Police Lt. John Walker.
The agency added that a shotgun was used to fire at the victims, which included children.
