Teen shot, wounded in N. Phila.; accident suspected

A 15-year-old was shot in the right hand in what police believe was an accidental firing Wednesday night in North Philadelphia.

About 8:50 p.m., police were called to the 1000 block of Norris Street, where the injured teen was found in a house, police said. He was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.

The boy said he was shot by somebody else, but evidence in the upstairs bedroom pointed to an accident, police said. A revolver was found in the room. - Robert Moran
