An 18-year-old was killed and four others wounded when a gunman opened fire Tuesday on a group of people sitting outside near a Philadelphia home.

Around 4 p.m., a white van pulled up beside the group in the city’s Strawberry Mansion neighborhood and shots rang out from the vehicle, WPVI-TV reported.

The 18-year-old man was shot twice in the head and taken to a hospital where he later died.

The other victims included a 15-year-old boy who was hit in the right leg, and a 24-year-old man wounded in the hand and left arm. Two men, ages 20 and 21, also were wounded but their injuries were not specified, WCAU-TV reported.
