Police rushed a 17-year-old to Albert Einstein Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition after he was shot in the ankle shortly before midnight Saturday on Medary Avenue near North Woodstock Street in the East Germantown section of Philadelphia. Police led one man from the area in handcuffs.


According to a report from 6ABC, investigators followed a blood trail to a house on Woodstock Street, where they found the man cleaning blood from a floor and took him in for questioning.
