?We had a group of males in the 100 block of S. 57th Street firing a gun,? said Lieutenant John Walker of the Philadelphia Police.

Officials believe the three victims were just innocent bystanders in an act of senseless violence.

One 14-year-old was shot in the back and was taken to the Children?s Hospital of Philadelphia in critical condition. Authorities said a 15-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the arm and is in stable condition at CHOP.

Officials said a 58-year-old amputee was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania after being struck in the leg by gunfire while standing on the porch of a group home.

No arrests have been made. Authorities believe the shooting may have stemmed from an argument at a nearby Chinese restaurant.
