Councilman Bobby Henon released the following statement concerning the shooting that occurred on the 6700 block of Torresdale Ave. this morning:
"At approximately 7:40 this morning, multiple shots were fired along the 6700 block of Torresdale Ave., with five striking my District Office at 6730 Torresdale. I am relieved to say that no one on my staff or the surrounding community was injured and my office has re-opened to constituents. The incident appears to have been isolated between two individuals, one of whom is undergoing treatment for a gunshot wound to the leg.
I am grateful for the quick response from the 15th Police District and am confident they will find the person responsible. However, the ongoing work of keeping our streets, homes and businesses safe belongs to all of us. I urge anyone with information as to this person's whereabouts to contact the 15th Police District immediately at 215-686-3150"
