Ten people, including a one-year-old child, were shot on Saturday night when gunmen opened fire at a block party in West Philadelphia.
The victims were hit with birdshot while attending a cookout around 10 p.m. along the 4100 block of Ogden Street, Philadelphia police said Monday.
Police did not immediately reveal what led to the shootings, which left three children injured. The youngest victim, a girl aged one, sustained a wound to the neck, NBC 10 said.
The other two injured children were an 11-year-old girl, whose right knee was grazed and right shoulder hit, and a 12-year-old boy, struck in the chest. All three children were listed in stable condition, according to NBC 10.
The remaining victims ranged in age between 22 and 48 years old and were all taken to Presbyterian Hospital for treatment. All were listed in stable condition.
The suspects fired birdshot "at least once" and then drove down the street in a gold or silver four-door sedan continuing to fire, possibly with a handgun, police said.
The police are after two suspects. The first was described by witnesses as a light-skinned black man in his 20s with a neck beard and tattooed arms. He was wearing a yellow t-shirt and blue jeans. The second suspect was a dark-skinned black man who was wearing dark blue jeans and a black shirt, police said.
Police are investigating the incident. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Southwest Detectives at 215-686-3183.
