Police Investigate North Philadelphia Shooting

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Police are searching for the suspects involved in the attempted murder of a SEPTA bus passenger Saturday evening.

Authorities say the incident happened just before 6 p.m. on 7th Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue, where a group of four males approached a Route 47 bus filled with passengers and opened fire.

According to investigators, the suspects were trying to shoot one of the riders on the bus and in turn struck the vehicle several times. The bus driver continued driving and let the passengers off at Temple University Hospital fearing that people may have been injured, officials say.

Fortunately, police say no one was hurt in the shooting.

The motive behind the shooting is not clear at this time. Police and SEPTA officials are investigating.

    Another act of senseless violence that occurs so frequently that it is becoming commonplace in this part of Philadelphia. Years ago a dispute would be settled with your fists – not a gun or knife. It was called “a fair one” which meant a fair fight between 2 people who had the disagreement. Today, one picks up a gun like it’s nothing to go and shoot another. Seems that it is in the culture…

    No kidding. But what is WRONG with you?

    1. Hater says:

      I can’t say what I really feel or I’ll get deleted. It gets very frustrating reading the same stories every day while the politicians and news media seem to turn a blind eye to the obvious problem. Just hate to see this country falling apart.
