Violent night in Philadelphia: Teen, 25-year-old driver killed in separate shootings

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- At least two people are dead, including a teenager, after a violent night in the City of Philadelphia.

Police say a 17-year-old boy was shot in the face during a barrage of gunfire on the 2100 block of Jefferson Street around 9 p.m. Monday in North Philadelphia. He was rushed to an area hospital where he later died.

The shooting happened just four blocks from the teen's home.

"Based on ballistic evidence, we know that at least 16 shots were fired. And they were fired from, clearly, two separate caliber semiautomatic handguns," Philadelphia Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

Police spent the night looking for surveillance video that may have captured an image of the killer who remains on the run.
