14-year-old girl inside Logan home struck by stray bullet

A 14-year-old girl was struck by a stray bullet while sitting in the kitchen of her great-grandmother's home, Philadelphia police say.

The shooting happened around 6:10 p.m. Monday on the 4400 block of North Gratz Street.

Police say the bullet came from a block away in the 4500 block of Gratz in the Logan section.

She was taken Einstein Medical Center in stable condition.

Police are trying to figure out if this shooting is connected to an earlier fatal shooting at 15th and Venango streets.

There, a 21-year-old male was shot five times to the left shoulder, abdomen and both legs. He was taken to Temple University Hospital in stable condition.

A 23-year-old male suffered a gunshot wound to the head. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

No arrests have been made.
