PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- A teenager is dead and two other people were injured Thursday night after a shooting in Southwest Philadelphia.

It happened around 7:30 p.m. near 15th and Federal Streets in the city's Point Breeze neighborhood.

Philadelphia police say a 15-year-old boy was shot six times. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A 20-year-old man is in critical condition and the third victim, a 16-year-old boy, was hospitalized in stable condition.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross and detectives are now trying to figure out who did this.

"The primary scene is actually south of here where there are multiple rounds," Ross said, "upwards of 39 rounds that were fired."

Authorities were looking over surveillance video to help in their investigation.
