The shooting occurred one hour after 100 people gathered for a vigil two blocks down the street, on the 5800 block of Angora Terrace, to remember 17-year-old aspiring Philly rapper Tata Chapo, whose real name was Tauhid Collins. Collins was shot and killed on that same street Friday night.

Police have yet to determine whether the two shootings are related.

Then hours later on Sunday, a 16-year-old girl was critically wounded in another shooting in a nearby home, according to the AP.
