Philadelphia shooting: 15-year-old critically injured after shooting on basketball court at Jerome Brown Playground
A 33-year-old woman, who was also playing basketball, was shot in the leg. She is in stable condition.
It happened just before 9 p.m. on the 1900 block of West Ontario Street at the Jerome Brown Playground in the city’s Tioga-Nicetown section.
“They appear to be hit by stray bullets,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Frank Vanore said. “There was at least one possible 4-year-old also shooting a basketball there, so it’s very scary and very disgusting
