Two students injured in Philadelphia school shooting


There has been another school shooting in the United States.

Gunshots hit a 15-year-old boy and girl in the gymnasium of the Delaware Valley Charter High School in Philadelphia. Their injuries are not life-threatening. The school immediately went into lockdown.

“We were just in the bathroom and our friend, she just came in the bathroom saying that her arm… there was just a lot of blood gushing out,” said one shocked student.

“And she just was saying she heard a loud boom in the gym room. And when she looked up, her and her boyfriend’s arms had been hit.”

A boy was taken into custody, but later cleared. A second student turned himself in and a third was still being sought by police.

Some reports now suggest the shooting may have been an accident.
