On Sept. 24, students crowded behind yellow caution tape after hearing gun shots near Main Campus.
Campus police confirmed that two juveniles, who are not Temple students, were shot at approximately 10 p.m., by Broad and Jefferson streets near Main Campus.
The victims were rushed to local hospitals, and are in critical condition according to Central Detectives in Philadelphia.
Freshman graphic design major Alex Nazzaro who lives at the Edge at Avenue North said, “My friend and I were walking out of the Edge toward 1300, we hear about five shots go off. Before you know it, police cars were everywhere. There was already a police car on the street.”
