Mapped: Seven shootings were reported in Philadelphia between Tuesday afternoon and early Wednesday morning.
A 17-year-old was listed in stable condition at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia after he was shot in the knee around 2:45 a.m. Wednesday on South 66th Street near Grays Avenue in the Elmwood section of Southwest Philadelphia.
An average of eight children and teens under the age of 20 are killed by guns every day in the United States, according to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, which adds that more than one in five American teens between ages 14 and 17 now report having witnessed a shooting.
The teen wounded overnight was the seventh person shot in separate incidents reported across Philadelphia since early Tuesday afternoon.
• Police rushed a 30-year-old man to Temple University Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition after he was shot four times around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday in the area of East Westmoreland and Tulip Streets in the Port Richmond section of the city.
• A 25-year-old man walked into the Aria Health Frankford Campus, where he was listed in stable condition with a foot wound after he was shot inside a home on Griscom Street near Dyre Street in Frankford shortly after 11:30 p.m.
• One man was killed and two more were wounded in separate shootings reported Tuesday in Philadelphia, as we previously reported.
The shooting victims reported in Philadelphia since Tuesday afternoon match the death toll of Ebola in the United States and represent twice as many hospitalizations. But we could find no media reports covering the four latest shootings as of early Wednesday morning.

Over the past few weeks, we have been editing the #GunCrisis Knowledge Base, a compendium containing nearly every #GunCrisis post we have published since launching in March 2012, sorted by category with the exception of incident reports, which now number greater than 1,500. (Use the search window in the left column to search for individual incidents reports.)
A few posts have been omitted to reduce redundancy, and sometimes for linking to external content which is no longer available, but please let us know if you have links which you think we need to repair.
