A 14-year-old boy was fatally shot Thursday evening in Olney, police said.
The teenager was shot once in the chest and once in the back on the 5900 block of Mascher Street at 5:12 p.m., police said. He was transported to Einstein Medical Center and pronounced dead at 5:25 p.m.
On Friday, police identified the victim as Tahmair Timms and said he lived in a different part of the city. They said they were not sure if he was the intended victim.
Police Chief Inspector Scott Small told CBS3: “We’re not sure if he was the intended target or if he was struck by stray gunfire because at the intersection of Mascher and Nedro, we found 10 spent shell casings from a large-caliber semi-automatic weapon.”
Police reported no arrests, and no other details were immediately available.
