Benson used her cell phone to call 911 and get help for the 16-year-old who was shot in the hand. A 31-year-old man was shot in the knee.

As police searched for clues to the crime in the 2300 block of North 15th street. People at the rec center comforted one another. Tasha B is furious that the gunman put so many people's lives in danger, especially little kids'.

So far no suspects in custody. The two victims were taken to Temple for their injuries.
