Six-year-old Jordan Hall was in tears while she and her mother waited to find her brother after two students were shot Friday afternoon inside the Delaware Valley Charter School in the Logan section of Philadelphia. Photographs for the Gun Crisis Reporting Project by Joseph Kaczmarek.
The teenage victims, a boy and a girl, suffered arm wounds and were rushed to Einstein Medical Center after a gun was fired in the school gymnasium.
Police said that surveillance video showed a group of seven children gathered at the time.
One person is in police custody and a second is sought, but a boy first taken in for questioning has been released.
Six more men have been wounded, three fatally, in Philadelphia shooting incidents reported since the school shooting, as we previously reported.
