Two teens were rushed to the hospital in critical condition early Tuesday after a gunman shot them through a window to a West Philadelphia home.
The victims — a 17-year-old boy and an 18-year-old woman — were shot in their stomachs several times as they sat on a couch in the home on the 800 block of North 45th Street, in the West Powelton neighborhood, about 1:45 a.m., 6ABC Action News reports.
There reportedly were five other people inside the home at the time of the gunfire, including a 9-month-old baby and an elderly woman in a wheelchair. No one else was injured by the gunshots.
