Teen among four overnight shooting victims

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.

• 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.
