A 31-year-old woman was shot twice and is in stable condition, police said.
A 17-year-old boy was also grazed by a bullet and is in stable condition, according to police.
"This has been a fairly quiet portion of the 22nd District for quite some time now," Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw told reporters. "So at this point we're piecing everything together to figure out if this is retaliatory, if some of those victims [were] intended or not."
