    On a warm night, more than one dozen shots rang out near a middle school in a shooting that left two men hospitalized overnight.

    Philadelphia Police rushed to Tulip and E Cambria Streets in the city’s Kensington neighborhood just after 10:45 p.m. Wednesday.

    The officers found a 20-year-ol shot in the leg and a 22-year-old shot in the leg and back.

    Both victims were taken to Temple University Hospital in stable condition.

    Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said that surveillance video could help them determine suspects in the case.

    Small said that they are fortunate no one else was hurt considering that the Memphis Street Academy and many homes are nearby.

    "On a wam summer night I'm sure there were a lot of people, parents, children, sitting on their front steps... we are fortunate we don't have more victims."

    Investigators found 15 shell casings from a semi-automatic weapon at the scene.
