A man climbed up on the bleachers at a playground in East Germantown Thursday night and opened fire, wounding three people, police said.
Cops were called to the playground at Wister Recreation Center, on Baynton Street near Wister Avenue, at 9:45 p.m., Chief Inspector Scott Small said. There, they found three men suffering gunshot wounds.
The first, an 18-year-old, was hit once in the upper right leg, the second, a 23-year-old, was wounded in the left calf and left foot and the third, 29, was hit in the left shoulder, Small said. All were taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center in stable condition.
The shooter is described as a man in his 20s who wore a white T-shirt and gray shorts and fled the scene on foot.
