Oh, this is just fantastic, since this gym is only two blocks from my house. I guess I have to wear my gun when I take out the trash now.
Oh, and speaking of trash, you’ll never guess what game the suspects and victims were playing when the gunfight erupted.
Investigators say an argument over a basketball game ended in a double shooting inside a Northeast Philadelphia gym Tuesday evening. The shooting happened at about 7:50 p.m. inside the World Gym in the 11000 block of Roosevelt Boulevard.
According to police, the incident began when two groups began arguing over a score during the basketball game. Investigators say at least one suspect grabbed a gun and began shooting inside the gym. A 26-year-old was shot once in the stomach and a 24-year-old was shot in the chest and face.
Police said one suspect was taken into custody, but they are currently searching for at least four additional suspects.
Animals. Now, in fairness I checked every local news website for information on this story, and not one of them described the suspects. Additionally, there is no mention of the race of the shooters and the victims. Lack of information, or politically-correct reporting? You make the call.
