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.
