4 teens shot at North Philadelphia birthday party on Bonsal Street

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Four teenagers were shot dead at a birthday party in North Philadelphia on Wednesday night.

It happened just before 11:30 p.m. at a house on Bonsal Street, near Cambria.

Police say between 15 and 20 people, aged between 11 and 18, had gathered for a 17th birthday celebration.

Arriving officers found the victims, three girls and a boy, all between the ages of 15 and 18.

A 15-year-old girl living at the home was shot in the back and leg. The three other victims were shot in the leg.

All four were taken to the hospital in stable condition.

The police recovered at least nine used shell casings on the ground floor and in the basement of the house. They also found a loaded magazine for a semi-automatic weapon.

Authorities say two bullets went into the second-floor bedroom of the house across the street where a woman lay in bed. She wasn’t hit.

The emergency services saw two men running away from the scene.

Officers chased her on foot to a house about a block away on Judson Street. The police took her into custody.

A third suspect was found nearby.

“The officers arrested these two individuals who were running from the scene of the shooting and also seized a handgun at the property. They found a third suspect in the area, and when officers stopped that third suspect, he had a pistol with him,” said Scott Small, chief inspector of the Philadelphia Police Department.

According to the data controller, 138 young people were shot this year by Tuesday, which corresponds to the previous year’s figure. More girls were shot this year compared to 2020 and 2021.

That shooting came a day after five people were shot dead near a West Philadelphia recreation center in an unrelated incident.
