Teen hurt in drive-by shooting near Frankford High School, police say

Philadelphia police are investigating a drive-by shooting in the city's Frankford neighborhood that sent a teenager to the hospital early Tuesday morning.

The shooting happened near the 1300 block of Fillmore Street around 8 a.m., about half a block away from Frankford High School.

Video of the shooting shows teens gathered near the sideway when several shots are fired towards the crowd from a car stopped down an alleyway. The young bystanders rush away from the gunfire, but one 18-year-old is seen lying in the middle of the street.

Responding officers rushed the victim to Temple Hospital with gunshot wounds to the back and arm, and a graze wound to the face. Police said the teen was placed in stable condition.

The shooting caused Frankford High School to enter and abbreviated lockdown as a precautionary measure.

FOX 29's Steve Keeley reports that gunfire also went through the window of a nearby home. Nobody inside the home was injured.

No arrests have been made and police have not yet provided an official description of the vehicle involved in the shooting. 

Philadelphia police are investigating a number of shootings involving teenage victims over the last several days, including at least two that were fatal. A 16-year-old boy was killed after police say he was shot in the face in Logan on Monday night. A 17-year-old girl died after police say she was shot while sitting in a car in Mount Airy on Friday.
