Suspect Shoots 4 In Philadelphia, Including 12-Year-Old


PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA — An armed suspect shot four people in a Philly neighborhood, and police have no leads and no suspect.

The 12-year-old boy, 26-year-old man, 52-year-old man and 21-year-old woman were all on the 700 block of East Clearfield Street around 5 p.m. Sunday when an unidentified gunman opened fire.

The boy was shot twice in the left arm, the 26-year-old man was shot once in the left side and three times in the buttocks, the 52-year-old man was shot three times in the right shoulder and arm while the woman suffered a graze wound to the head.


The boy and the woman are in stable condition, while the 52-year-old man is in critical condition. The condition of the 26-year-old man is unknown.

There seems to be uncertainty as to whether or not the shooting had anything to do with the ongoing Country-wide riots. Philadelphia has been hard-hit, along with many other cities, with violence spreading quickly.

This is the second day of rioting in the city, initially starting as protests after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Floyd was killed while in police custody, and the arresting officer has been officially charged with murder.
