Philly school shootingSecurity cameras recorded two Philadelphia students being shot and wounded by a classmate in a high school gymnasium Friday afternoon, police reported.

Two teens were in custody Friday night, but police were still seeking a third student and the weapon. A boy and a girl, both 15 years old, were shot with a handgun about 3:30 p.m. at the Delaware Valley Charter High School in the Olney section of North Philadelphia.

Police Lt. John Stanford said at a news briefing that each victim was hit once in an arm, and they were taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center, two blocks away. The girl was discharged hours later, and the boy was listed in stable condition.

Surveillance video showed three youths together and one pulling out a handgun. But Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said it was not yet clear which one pulled the trigger, how many shots were fired or whether the shooting was intentional or accidental.

Seven students were in the gym at the time.

The wounded girl went into the bathroom moments afterward, and there was "just a lot of blood gushing out.," a friend told WPVI-TV.
