PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Authorities say a 14-year-old youth was killed and four other students were wounded in a shooting near a northwest Philadelphia high school athletic field after a football scrimmage.
Police said players were walking off the field behind Roxborough High School after a scrimmage involving three schools when at least two people opened fire shortly after 4:30 p.m. Tuesday before fleeing.
Police said a 14-year-old shot in the chest died at Einstein Medical Center.
A 17-year-old shot in the arm and leg and a 14-year-old shot in the thigh were listed in stable condition.
A fourth victim was taken to a hospital, and another student grazed by a bullet was treated at the scene.
