Last week, a bad incident happened in Northeast Philadelphia. Some people shot at a group of high school students waiting at a bus stop, hurting eight of them. The students were between 15 and 17 years old.

Around 3 p.m. last Wednesday, three individuals got out of a car, walked up to the students, and fired more than 30 shots before running away, as explained by Philadelphia Police Commissioner Kevin Bethel.

The police found clues, like two stolen cars, to identify the suspects. One of them, Jamaal Tucker, gave himself up, while another, Ahnile Buggs, got arrested over the weekend. They are both 18 years old and are being held in jail with bail set at $2 million.

The US Marshals Service caught a third suspect on Tuesday in Northeast Philadelphia, but we don’t know much about them yet.

The injured students suffered wounds to their legs, arms, backs, and upper bodies. One 16-year-old got shot nine times and is in critical condition, while the others are stable.

District Attorney Lawrence Krasner mentioned that Tucker and Buggs are facing charges related to all eight victims. These charges include trying to kill someone, using weapons, having a dangerous object, and other serious crimes.

Philadelphia Mayor Cherelle Parker talked about people’s worries about using public transportation. She assured residents that they are doing everything possible to keep everyone safe. The focus is on preventing incidents, intervening when necessary, and enforcing the law.

During a news conference on Monday, authorities urged anyone who knows something about the shooting to share it with the police.
