‘Bullets Don’t Have Names’: Child Shot At Mother’s Day Party In Chester

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — An annual Mother’s Day block party in Chester was destroyed after a 6-year-old girl and a 67-year old woman were shot on Saturday. This happened just after 5 p.m. on the 200 block of Lloyd Street.

“He was about right here, so I looked at him, he looked suspicious. He had his hand in his pocket, hoodie on and began shooting for nothing,” said Brian Jones who witnessed the shooting.

The 5-year-old was shot in her leg and the woman in her forearm.

“It’s unfortunate, bullets don’t have names,” said Albert Idlette who is a cousin of one of the victims.

Police found seven small caliber gun shell casings as the victim’s family looked on.

“Frustrating, very confusing because we have a great neighborhood. My son he’s 6-years-old, he plays out there all the time, so it was real shocking,” said Janeisha Bowman who lives near where the shooting happened.

Investigators combed the scene, searching for clues.

“We would love for the community to call us if they see anything. Right now we’re looking at several different things before we put out any description of any subject, we want to make sure it’s the right description,” said Chester Police Sergeant William Carey.

As for the gunman.

“I hope he do get caught and I hope he send him to jail because it’s sad to do that while kids are out there, playing enjoying their self. It’s sad,” said Bowman.

Both victims are listed in good condition.

The motive behind the shooting is unclear.

So far there have been no arrests made.
