Nazeem Anthony Rains, 17, was declared de@d at 6:09 p.m., Said his grandmother. The conditions of the remaining three v!ctims are described as stable. The youngster, aged 7, was going down the street when he was hit by a stray bullet, according to the police and NBC10.
Yolanda Rains, Yolanda’s grandson, informed NBC10 that he went to Philadelphia Learning Academy. “They broke my heart,” Rains said. “I’m never going to be the same.” According to Rains, her grandson was on his way to the store when the incident took place.
“He had just walked to the store to go get something and then we heard 15 shots and then they say my baby was laying out there on the ground de@d,” she said. “They k!lled him.” Rains claimed that her grandson was planning to leave Philadelphia and join the Job Corps in order to get away from the city’s violence.

“My grandson didn’t deserve this,” she said. “He just turned 17. He didn’t deserve that at all. He didn’t. He didn’t. He was a good kid.” So far, neither weapons nor suspects have been apprehended. No suspect descriptions have been made public by the police.
One of the youngsters, police say, may have been the intended v!ctim. “At this point it looks like one of the juveniles that was struck may also have been in possession of a firearm,” Philadelphia Police First Deputy Commissioner John Stanford stated. We haven’t been able to verify that yet.
