A suspect is on the run in Philadelphia after a 14-year-old boy was shot and killed on a SEPTA train platform Saturday afternoon, authorities said.
The shooting happened shortly after 2 p.m. at the SEPTA station located in the 5200 block of Market Street in West Philadelphia, police said.
The teen, whose identity was not immediately released, was shot in the arm and chest. He was rushed to a local hospital where he later died.
The suspected gunman was seen fleeing the station with what appeared to be four male juveniles, FOX29 Philadelphia reported, citing police sources. The sources said the suspect used a green semi-automatic gun with an extended magazine.
