A 13-year-old boy was shot twice Monday afternoon in South Philadelphia over a stolen bicycle, police said, and SWAT teams zeroed in on a house that later turned out to be empty.
The shooting - witnessed by a Philadelphia police detective - occurred around 4:40 p.m. near 20th and Morris Streets. The boy was in the front passenger seat of a car when a man on the street opened fire, shooting about eight times, police said.
The bullets struck the boy in an arm and a leg. He was taken to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where he was listed in stable condition Monday night.
