Teresa Masterson, NBC Philadelphia, October 19, 2011

A welcome home party for a teen released from juvenile detention resulted in gunshots and stab wounds for five people at the party.


Reports of gunshots in that area brought police to find two people with stab wounds from a huge brawl that erupted on the street during the party. Police brought the two wounded to St. Luke’s Hospital and later discovered that three more people were stabbed and had gone to the hospital on their own.

Four adults and one 17-year-old juvenile were among the wounded, reports the Morning Call.\


Police told the Morning Call that the cause for the fight was unknown and the guest of honor was not among the wounded or detained.
