In West Philadelphia just after 12:30 pm on Monday, a 15-year-old boy was shot multiple times and remains in critical condition in hospital. This was prior to the civil unrest that followed the shooting of Walter Wallace.

The incident occurred on Cecil Street in West Philadelphia. According to police, the teen was shot in the torso four times.

According to local affiliate FOX 29 News, the victim was rushed to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center.

Philadelphia is currently running a total of 400 homicides so far this year, representing a 10-year high for the area. On Monday, there were seven separate shooting incidents all over the city, one of which was fatal.

The recent wave of violent crime is putting stress on the hospital system, and especially on the already beleaguered police department.

Barry Torrence, the victim of a fatal shooting on Monday, was pronounced dead at the scene. The following incidents also occurred within the next several hours of Torrence's death:

· A 35-year-old man was shot in the lower body on North Van Pelt Street, and is in stable condition.

· A 20-year-old man was shot four times in the legs on West Greenwood Stree. He is also in stable condition.

· Another 31-year-old man was dropped off at the hospital after being shot once in the leg on Vine Street early in the morning. He is also listed as being in stable condition.

· A 60-year old man was also shot in the hand on Charles Street in the area of Wissinoming. He is currently in stable condition.

· A 29-year-old man is listed as being in critical condition at Temple University Hospital after he was shot in the neck on Castor Avenue.

· A 23-year-old man is in stable condition after  being shot in the leg at the corner of 52nd and Thompson Streets .

All eight of the above incidents are currently under investigation, and no arrests have been made in any of them at this time.

Anybody with any relevant information is asked to please contact the Philadelphia police.
