A teen was injured early Saturday morning after a hail of bullets flew through the window of an Olney apartment building.

Officers shortly before 1:15 a.m. responded to a report of a person with a gun on the 200 block of West Furley Street.

As they were en route, police received additional information that someone had shot out the window of an apartment on the 5700 block of North Third Street.

Arriving investigators found bullet holes through the second-floor window of the northeast corner of the North Third Street apartment building.

As officers were surveying the 5700 block of North American and 200 block of West Furley streets, they found further evidence of a shooting and secured the scene.

Police said they were then notified that a private vehicle had dropped off a 19-year-old man at Albert Einstein Medical Center.

The victim had been shot in the foot.

While on the scene, officers recieved information there may have been additional victims inside two properties on the 200 block of West Furley Street.

Police said they checked the residences but found no additional victims.

Authorities said Sunday a motive for the shooting had not yet been determined, and no arrests had yet been made.

Anyone with information on the crime is asked to contact the Northwest Detectives Division at 215-686-3353 or 3354, or to submit an anonymous tip by dialing 215-686-TIPS (8477), texting PPD TIP (773847), emailing tips@phillypolice.com or by filling out this online form.
