Incident Details

At least 20 shots were fired from multiple weapons, Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said, but Figueroa was the only one struck.

At least 10 of the bullets pierced a home filled with people — including a 2-year-old boy and 3-year-old girl who were asleep –, but no one inside was struck by the gunfire, Small said, according to ABC Philadelphia station WPVI.

Police would not confirm if the 16-year-old were targeted.

A growing epidemic of gun violence has plagued Philadelphia. Last year was Philadelphia’s deadliest year on record, with over 500 homicides.

No arrests have been made, police said.
