Several teenagers are being sought for throwing some sort of explosive into a corner store on Washington Avenue earlier this month, and video captured the explosion.
No one was hurt Aug. 12 inside New Dragon City, a Chinese food store, when one of the teens threw something through the front door and the device detonated, causing an initial flare of fire followed by a large sparkling explosion.
Surveillance video from cameras along the 500 block of Washington Avenue in South Philadelphia captured the teenagers approaching the corner store about 5:30 p.m., and fleeing after the explosion.
