WHAT BEGAN as a fight yesterday among girls at South Philadelphia High School led to a neighborhood shoot-out that left three bystanders - a 2-year-old girl, a 10-year-old boy and their grandmother - wounded, police said.
"It was some dumb crap that they were fighting over that means absolutely nothing," an angry Commissioner Charles Ramsey told reporters at the scene, on Bucknell Street near Wharton. "And now we're talking about a 2-year-old who's in surgery as we speak."
Asiyah Owens, 2, was shot in the right hip and hand, police said. She reportedly was in critical condition at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia last night. Sayir Saunders, 10, was shot in the leg and taken to CHOP in stable condition. Their grandmother, Andrea Pointer, 59, was also shot once in the leg. She was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and listed in stable condition.
