A 15-year-old boy was fatally wounded in a double shooting Thursday night at a gas station in South Philadelphia, police said.
Just after 8 p.m., police were called to the corner of 25th Street and Passyunk Avenue, where they found the victim on the ground at the Gulf gas station there, said Chief Inspector Scott Small. Police took the teen, who had been shot in the chest, to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead around 8:40 p.m.
Police on Friday identified the teen as Rasul Benson of the 1500 block of Ellsworth Street.
The second victim, also a 15-year-old boy, ran to the First Police District headquarters nearby at 24th and Wolf Streets. Police also took him to Penn Presbyterian, where he was in critical but stable condition with gunshot wound to his right shoulder.
The entire incident was captured on surveillance video, Small said. The shooter can be seen exiting a vehicle and opening fire from the street and on the gas station property. Police recovered 16 shell casings at the scene.
