Police: Teens wounded in Logan shooting

Two 17-year-old boys were wounded in a shooting in Logan Monday night, police said.

Cops said the teens were in a silver Chevy Prizm near 9th Street and Lindley Avenue shortly before 7 p.m. when someone opened fire on the car, hitting it several times. One of the teens was hit in the knee and the other was grazed in the leg, police said.

The pair were taken in a private auto to St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, where police said they were expected to be treated and released.

The Chevy the boys had been in when they were shot was found behind a house on 2nd Street near Ruscomb not long after the shooting. Police said it was riddled with bullet holes.

It was unclear later Monday what motivated the shooting, and police continued to investigate.

Earlier in the evening, police were called to Dauphin and Fawn streets in Hartranft, where a 39-year-old man was shot twice in the leg around 5:30 p.m. Police said that man drove himself to Hahnemann University Hospital and was listed in stable condition.

No arrests have been made in either shooting.
