Police: Teens hospitalized after double shooting in Nicetown

Two teenagers were hospitalized Friday night after they were shot in Nicetown, police said.

Shots rang out at 15th Street and Hunting Park Avenue just before 9 p.m. A 16-year-old boy was wounded three times -- in the left side of his buttocks, right thigh and left calf, police said. The second victim, a 17-year-old boy, was wounded once in the right calf. Both were taken to Temple University Hospital and listed in stable condition.

Police did not say late Friday what sparked the shooting, but a high-school football game between Dobbins High and Simon Gratz had wrapped up at Gratz's home field, about a block from where the shooting took place, shortly before. It was unclear if the victims had attended the game.

The shooting remained under investigation around 10:30 p.m. Friday.
