El shooting


On December 12, 2012, at 10:39pm, the complainants, a 36 year-old male and a 30 year-old male entered the westbound Septa El train at 15th and Market Streets. While on the train, an argument erupted amongst several passengers. When the train stopped at the 46th and Market Street, the suspects exited the train onto the platform. Suspect #1 then pointed a handgun in the direction of one of the complainants and fired one shot into the train striking him in the left side of his stomach passing through him then striking the second complainant in the left thigh. Both offenders then fled on foot from the El platform in an unknown direction.
