A 17-year-old turned himself in to police Saturday, the second in connection with the shooting of two students at a Philadelphia high school Friday afternoon.

The boy’s identity is not being released because of his age, but he has been charged with aggravated assault. The first boy to turn himself in Friday has not yet been charged.

Both victims, a male and a female at Delaware Valley Charter School, were shot in the arm in the school gym, the Associated Press reports. They were taken to a nearby hospital, where the girl has been released and the boy is listed as in stable condition, police say.

Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said at a news conference that the weapon has not been found, and it remains unclear if it was discharged intentionally or by accident.

This story has been updated with more details on the shooting.

Less was made of this shooting than others before and another , a week or so ago , made the news but no big  thing really . I guess we are going to have to accept that shooting at schools and movie theaters as a fact of life and we have to adjust as have the shooters .

to bad there was not a cop in the school rather than at some useless speed trap.

Easy for nuts and criminals to get guns. Parents leave them where kids can get them, and punks sell them in the hood to anyone with the cash. The NRA has nothing to do with this type of school crap, the parents, thugs and punks do. The bullies in schools today better be careful, these weaker kids will shoot you. So stop the bully crap morons.

A lot of this could be stop or contain if the politically correct  i d i o t s  stop posting Gun Free Zone signs and use armed campus security. For one school shooting was nip in the bud in roughly 80 seconds and only one student was killed. If the Arm Security did not exist the dirtbag had 100rds of ammo, shotgun, 3 fire bombs, and a machete. Imagine how many would have been kill if a good guy with a gun wasn't there .......Patrick?
