Report: 8 Wounded After 3 Suspects Open Fire at Philadelphia Bus Stop

Eight teenagers were reportedly shot and wounded while waiting at a Philadelphia SEPTA bus stop on Wednesday afternoon.

WHYY reported that “three suspects [exited] a dark blue 2019 Hyundai Sonata and [opened] fire at people waiting at the bus stop.”

Approximately 30 shots were fired in the attack.

Eight high school students were injured in the incident, two of them critically, reports say.

WATCH/BREAKING: Surveillance video of this afternoon’s 2:57pm shooting of 8 students was at Northeast Philadelphia bus stop. ⁦@PhillyPolice⁩ hope someone can somehow identify the Hyundai & 3 shooters or know who drives this car with a temporary paper tag. As driver waits.

Wednesday afternoon’s shooting is the fourth Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) shooting in “less than a week.”
