Cops: Triple shooting injures teens in Grays Ferry

Three teens were injured in a shooting just after midnight Monday in Grays Ferry, police said.

An officer on foot patrol heard gunfire around 12:01 a.m. in the area of 27th and Dickinson Streets and while surveying that location, he was approached by a 17-year-old boy with a gunshot wound to his thigh, according to police.

The boy told the officer he was shot a block away on the 1500 block of South Etting Street. When officers arrived on scene, they found two more victims, a 16-year-old boy with a gunshot wound to his right thigh and a 16-year-old boy with a gunshot wound to his right buttocks, police said.

The 16-year-old who was shot in his thigh and the 17-year-old were both taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, where they were listed in stable condition.

The 16-year-old who was shot in his buttocks was taken to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where he was also listed in stable condition.

A motive remains unknown but police said the shooters may have been in a newer-model, white, four-door Nissan Maxima or Altima.
