Police: 2 teenagers shot in parking lot of Port Richmond Wawa

Authorities say a teenager who was shot while sitting inside a car with another teen ran into a Philadelphia Wawa for help. 

Officers from the Philadelphia Police Department were called to the 2500 block of Aramingo Avenue for reports of a shooting. 

Police found a 15-year-old suffering from gunshot wounds to the left arm and armpit, and rushed him to Temple Hospital where he was placed in stable condition. 


After being shot, police say the teen ran into a nearby Wawa to ask for help. He was sitting inside a car with another 15-year-old when someone fire into the vehicle, striking both teens.

Police say the second 15-year-old gunshot victim was driven by someone to Albert Einstein Medical Center where he was also placed in stable condition.  

No arrests were reported immediately following the double shooting. 

A resident who lives near the Port Richmond Wawa told FOX 29 that violence in the parking lot has been increasing. 

"I'm honestly not really surprised, there is a lot of stuff that goes on at that Wawa parking lot, it seems to drawn a lot of criminal activity," Natalie Shaak said.
