An Overbrook High School student was killed and two other young males were wounded as gunfire broke out Thursday afternoon at a playground across from the school, authorities said.
About 3:45, two teens began fighting on the field at Tustin Playground, 59th Street and Lancaster Avenue, said Lt. John Walker of Southwest Detectives. When one side started losing, "the guns came out," Walker said.
A driver on 59th saw a teenager bent over with a gunshot wound to the stomach and drove him to Lankenau Medical Center, where he was admitted in critical condition, police said. He died about 8 p.m., police said. A source identified him as Bernard Scott.
