When police arrived, they found a victim suffering from a gunshot wound.

The victim, a 14-year-old boy who is a city resident, appeared to have a graze wound to his right foot.

This was the result of a drive-by shooting, though there is no motive yet, it is believed the boy was not the intended target.

The boy was transported to Crozer-Chester Medical Center for treatment.

As police were assessing the crime scene, several other calls for help poured into the Delaware County 911 Center reporting a man shot in the area of 3rd & Lamokin Streets.

Again, this appeared to be a drive-by shooting.

The caller stated that someone was shot and was being helped in to a vehicle.

A short time later, a victim walked in to Crozer Chester Medical Center.

Upon officers arrival to the hospital, they spoke to the victim, who was identified as Tyleel Scott-Harper.

The victim appeared to have a graze wound to his right arm.

Upon speaking to the victim, he stated that he just left the store located at 3rd & Lamokin Street, and began walking north towards Union Street.

He further stated that he observed a vehicle driving north on Lamokin Street, then heard shots being fired.

He was transported to Crozer Chester Medical Center by a friend in a privately owned vehicle. The victim is listed in good condition.

If anyone has any information regarding this incident, they are urged to contact Detective Brian Pot at 610-447-8431 or [email protected]
