Reading Police officers responded around 11:30pm Sunday to the intersection for the report of a shooting with multiple victims. Upon arrival, a man and teen were located with gunshot wounds.

Both victims were transported to Reading Hospital for treatment. As of Monday morning, police say they were in serious condition.

A witness, who wanted to remain anonymous, told Berks Weekly the incident began at the Turkey Hill Convenience Store with an argument between the victims and another person.

A little while later, while police had the intersection closed for the investigation, a vehicle drove through the crime scene and fled down Green Street, following what appeared to be a few heated words with a group of people further down the block.

Police did not release any suspect information as of Monday morning.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Reading Police at 610-655-6116 or anonymously with Crime Alert Berks at 877-373-9913.
