An innocent young man was playing catch outside of his home with a friend when he was wounded by a gunfire early Wednesday evening. Now, police in Delaware County are on the hunt for the two gunmen responsible for the shooting that left a 15-year-old teenager in the hospital.

It all unfolded just after 6:00 p.m. when police say two gunmen pulled up to a stop sign at the intersection of 7th and Lamokin street and opened fire on two boys playing catch with a baseball.

Officers from the City of Chester Police Department immediately responded to the boy’s home on the 700 block of Lamokin Street when 911 calls stated a young boy had been shot.

Witnesses told police that they noticed an unknown white mid-sized, 4-door vehicle with no distinguishing marks pull up to the stop sign at the intersection. The driver, described as a light-skinned black male extended his arm out of the driver side window, opening fire and striking the boy twice; one shot striking his leg and the other his hand. The gunman appeared to have a red sweatshirt on.

Paramedics transported the victim to Crozer-Chester Medical Center, where he was treated for his injuries. He is currently listed in good condition.

Anyone with any information on this incident is urged to contact Detective Brian Pot at 610-447-8431 or bpot302@chesterpolice.org.
