Philadelphia police are investigating a shooting that injured a mother and her young child inside a residence on Thursday night.
It happened around 8:36 p.m. inside a home on the 1800 block of E. Venango Street.
Police say a 28-year-old mother was shot in the upper thigh and her 5-year-old son was shot in the forearm while they were lying in bed. Both victims are listed in stable condition.
