PHILADELPHIA — Authorities have released the name of a teenager killed in a triple shooting in northeast Philadelphia that critically injured two other people.

The gunfire broke out just after 9 p.m. Monday in the Mayfair section of the city. Police said 17-year-old Quantico Brunson was shot in the back and died at a hospital.

Police said a 16-year-old youth was hit in the chest and a 21-year-old was hit in the neck and collarbone. Both were listed in critical condition.

Authorities say a weapon has been recovered at the scene, but no arrests have been made.

It’s unclear what led up to the shooting.
