A 15-year-old boy suffered one gunshot wound to his left thigh and a 14-year-old boy was shot once in his left foot.
Both were transported to Albert Einstein Medical Center and placed in stable condition.
“I’m on the bleachers enjoying the game and then everybody started hearing gunshots, then we ran down the bleachers, everybody’s pushing everybody and I’m like, we can’t enjoy anything in Philly, because it’s always something, they just start shooting,” Mya Zarate said.
Marcus Foster Memorial Stadium is Simon Gratz High’s home field.
No arrests have been made.
An investigation is actively ongoing.
