A teen was shot early Saturday morning in the courtyard of a North Philadelphia housing project.
Police said the victim, 16, was playing cards with friends inside a unit of the Norman Blumberg Apartments, located at 1516 Judson Way.
The teen left around 2:30 a.m. to pick up food from a Chinese restaurant near 23rd Street and Oxford Avenue.
As the teen was walking back through the courtyard of the Blumberg projects, he told police he heard a single gunshot and was stuck in the back of his left leg.
The victim was able to make it back inside the apartment, where he called police.
