Philadelphia Police have two in custody in connection with a shooting Thursday evening on Border Street that wounded two individuals and sent one to the hospital.

Anterrio Madison, 18, of DeKalb has been charged with four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A juvenile, age 15, was also charged with five counts of the same.

Philadelphia Police Det. Bobby Pattillo said that the two were arrested in connection with the Thursday evening shooting in west northwest Philadelphia.

“Initial investigation has led to two suspects being charged,” Pattillo said. “Case is still under investigation and more charges may be pending.”

Sheriff Eric Clark said that it was a PD case, though his officers did respond to the hospital since it is county property.

“We responded to Neshoba General,” Clark said. “City responded to the scene and worked the case.”

Pattillo said that on Thursday, September 24, at approximately 5:30 p.m. the Philadelphia Police Department responded to the area of Border Street near Lewis Avenue in reference to several shots being fired. Responding officers were then directed to Border Street near Martin Luther King Drive where more shots had been reported fired.

Pattillo said it was then discovered that a house had been shot into in the 200 block area of Border Street and a resident inside had been struck.

EMS responded but the resident refused treatment and was not transported to the hospital. That resident suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

A second victim shot on Border Street had been transported by personal vehicle to Neshoba General, having suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his legs. He was later transported to UMMC but has subsequently been released.
