A 14-year-old girl was wounded in a shooting in the Northeast's Crescentville section Saturday night, police said.

At 9:38 p.m., according to a department spokeswoman, cops responded to a call for a person with a gun in a driveway behind houses on Cheltenham Avenue near Colgate Street. When they got there, they found the teen girl lying on the ground behind houses on Rosalie Street near Colgate, in an alley behind houses. Suffering from gunshot wounds to her leg and her chest, she was rushed by police ato Albert Einstein Medical Center.

As of Sunday afternoon, the girl was listed in stable condition, and police had no information on what motivated the shooting or who shot her.

Later Saturday night, two men were wounded in a shooting at 27th and Tasker streets, in South Philadelphia, cops said. Both men were shot around 11:30 p.m. and taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where police said the first victim, a 28-year-old man, was in stable condition with a gunshot wound to the right leg and a second victim, age 32, was listed in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the stomach.

On Sunday afternoon, police said, a 21-year-old man was in critical condition after he was shot at least five times on a street in Port Richmond.

In that shooting, police said the victim was at Tioga and Sepviva streets when someone opened fire on him around 3 p.m., wounding him twice in the left leg, once in the right leg, once in the groin and once in the buttocks. He remained critical at Temple University Hospital around 5:30 p.m. Sunday, police said. Cops did not say what motivated the shooting, and no arrests were made.
