A 15-year-old boy is recovering after police say he was shot in the leg following an argument inside a mini-market early Wednesday morning in Holmesburg. 

Officers from the city's 15th district found the teenage victim on the 7700 block of Walker Street around 3 a.m. with a gunshot wound to the leg. He was taken to Torresdale Hospital in stable condition. 

The teen told police that he was shot outside a mini-market on Frankford Avenue and Chippendale Street after he and another teen got into an argument with two others inside the store.
