Teen dead after gunmen ‘ambushed’ 5 high school football players in Philadelphia, police say – NBC News

In an ambush-style attack outside a Pennsylvania high school on Tuesday afternoon, two gunmen killed a teenage football player and injured four others.

According to police, the violence broke out after 4:40 p.m. outside Roxborough High School in Philadelphia as the boys left a football scrimmage against two other schools.

A 14-year-old boy was killed and several other teens were wounded when gunmen opened fire from a light green Ford Explorer.

The murdered teenager was shot once in the chest on the left side. Within 30 minutes of the attack, he was pronounced dead.

Police said a 17-year-old player was shot once in his right arm and three times in his left leg, while his 14-year-old teammate was shot once in the left thigh. There was a fourth victim who sustained a graze injury, ABC7 reported.

The surviving teens are in stable condition, according to authorities.

Police said all five victims played football for Roxborough High School. However, sources told WPVI-TV that the murdered 14-year-old attends nearby Saul High School, which doesn’t have a football team.

The Roxborough team allows students from Saul to play, according to the sources.
There have been no arrests as of yet, and police are still investigating.
