Police: Teen killed, 4 wounded in Strawberry Mansion shooting

A teen has died and four others were wounded in a broad daylight shooting in Philadelphia's Strawberry Mansion neighborhood, according to police.

It happened at 30th and Cumberland streets Tuesday around 4 p.m. 

Police say an 18-year-old man was shot twice in the head. He was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he died. A 24-year-old man was shot once in the hand and once in the arm. He was taken to the hospital in unknown condition. A 15-year-old boy is in serious condition after being shot in the leg.

Two men, ages 20 and 21, were also shot. Their conditions are unknown at this time.

"From what we're told they were sitting on the steps, a van pulls up with two gentlemen who began firing on this group. One person at least from that group returned fire,” said Deputy Commissioner Melvin Singleton. 

So far, no arrests have been made and a motive was not immediately known

Gun violence has plagued the city in the recent months. Over the weekend, five people were killed and more than 30 were wounded in shootings throughout Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw says everyone needs to come together to decrease the violence. 

"Residents know who they're allowing to sleep on their couch. They know who are bringing guns into their homes. They don’t even feel safe in their own homes. We gotta figure out a way to come together, witnesses to come forward, solve these crimes and ensure that no one feels that this is normal," she said.
