Five people, including a young child, were shot and wounded Monday night outside a house in North Philadelphia, police said.

Police said a group of people were at the home shortly before 10 p.m. when a gunman opened fire on the 2300 block of West Harold Street, striking three women, a 14-year-old girl, and a boy about 2 years old. The wounded women included the boy’s 18-year-old mother.

The victims were found in the front of the house, inside the home, and in a nearby alley, according to an initial police report.

Police said responding units took four of the victims to Temple University Hospital. The boy, who shot in the back, was taken to St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, where he was listed in critical condition.

Of the other victims, police said the 14-year-old girl was in critical condition and the 18-year-old woman, who was shot multiple times, was in critical but stable condition. Police said a 25-year-old woman was shot twice in the leg, and a 42-year-old woman sustained a graze wound.

The residence, a two-story rowhouse, on a residential block is not far from Dobbins Technical High School. Police said the gathering was a birthday party for a relative who had died.

A neighbor who lives a few doors down, Marvin Moseley, 50, said the residents of the house are relatively new and people are always coming and going.

“There’s always so many people down there, I don’t actually know who lives there,” Moseley said.

Of the shooting, Moseley, who’s lived on the block since 2015, said: “It’s North Philadelphia. Unfortunately, that’s the nature of living around here. This block is normally quiet, but all around it’s always" iffy, even violent.

The bloodshed follows a triple shooting March 21 that left a teenager and two others critically wounded in the city’s Tioga-Nicetown section.

One of the victims, a 17-year-old, was shot four times in the back and once in the arm in the 1800 block of West Tioga Street, police said. A 20-year-old suffered three gunshot wounds, and a man, described at being in his mid-20s to late 30s, suffered multiple wounds to the torso, police said.
