This post has been updated.

A 2-year-old who was shot in the stomach during a triple shooting in the city's Logan section last night remains in critical condition today, according to police.

The little girl was outside on 12th Street near Courtland when gunfire erupted around 9:17 p.m. She was hit once in the stomach and transported to Albert Einstein Medical Center and then to St. Christopher's Children's Hospital, where she was immediately taken in to surgery, police said.

Also injured by the gunfire was a 22-year-old man who was shot once in the left leg and a 30-year-old man who was shot once in the left hand. Both men were listed in stable condition.

Police reported that the shooting occurred during a block party, but neighbors said today that the gathering was actually a house party in front of one or more houses on the block.

Police do not yet have a motive or a suspect in the shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call the department's tip line at 215-686-8477.
