Police in Delaware County are investigating a shooting that left three people wounded Thursday night and a serious accident that followed just 40-minutes later.
The gunfire comes right after hundreds marched Thursday night with the victim’s grieving parents and siblings throughout their East End neighborhood, two days after a young city woman was gunned down in front of her West 21st Street residence.
Just after 9 p.m. Thursday, Chester City Police responded to a shooting on the 1100 block of Pine Lane.
A 43-year-old man, 26-year-old man and 51-year-old woman were wounded as a result to the gunfire.
All of the victims were transported to Crozer-Chester Medical Center by private auto.
Police tell us the men were shot out back of a residence and the woman was struck by a stray bullet while inside the home.
All of the victims were treated at Crozer-Chester Medical Center and none of the injuries appear life threatening at this time.
No additional information is immediately available.
Just 40-minutes later, police responded to an accident on Route 291.
According to Captain James Chubb of the City of Chester Police, a Lexus sedan travelling east on 291 went off the roadway near Concord Ave before flipping over several times and eventually coming to a stop in a rear yard on Penn St.
The operator of the vehicle was ejected and was taken to Crozer-Chester Medical Center for treatment.
The cause of the accident is under investigation.
