Two 16-year-olds and one 13-year-old were injured in the daylight shooting, police told FOX 29.

One man who lives in the neighborhood told FOX 29 he fears the future of the city is compromised because of all the violence.

“Every situation is sad. Every single situation is sad. We have to get in front of this and I mean like now, or we won’t have any kids left,” he said. “There won’t be a future in Philadelphia.”

Another woman who took cover indoors when she heard the gunshots said she feared for all the children in the area. 

One weapon was recovered from the scene. 

Minutes after the three teens were struck, authorities say more shots rang out just down the street. 

Shortly before 5 p.m., police responded to the 5500 block of Lansdowne Avenue for reports of another unrelated shooting. A 45-year-old man was found by officers to have been shot two times in the leg. He was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

No arrests have been made in that incident, either.
