According to Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small, both victims are residents of the home where they were shot.
“The home where both of these victims were standing when they were shot was also struck several times by gunfire. So it appears that the shooter or shooters were intentionally firing gunshots at this property,” added Small.
There have been no reported arrests. The suspect or suspects may have gone in a dark-colored vehicle, according to the police.
