Radeem Corley, 17, was arrested Thursday after allegedly spraying a block of Myrtlewood Street in Strawberry Mansion with bullets, wounding two 13-year-old girls during a neighborhood gathering, police said.

Cops responded to the shooting on Myrtlewood Street near Cumberland around 6 p.m. and took the two teenage victims to Temple University Hospital.

One was shot in her eye and was listed in critical condition. The second victim was shot in her neck, chest and stomach and was listed in stable condition Thursday night.

The circumstances behind the shooting remained unclear Friday night.
