READING, Pa. – Police are investigating another shooting in Reading.
Officers were dispatched around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday to the area of South 12th and Cotton streets.
Police said there was a shooting, but declined to release any details about what happened.
The incident drew a large response to the neighborhood, and one person was reportedly taken to the hospital.
The Berks County coroner said their office was not called for this incident, but authorities did not comment on the severity of injuries.
Officers were at the scene for a couple of hours collecting evidence and talking with neighbors.
The shooting comes a day after two teens were hurt, one critically, when someone opened fire as they were walking down the street in the area of North 10th and Spring streets Monday afternoon.
“I understand any city is going to have its ups and downs, but to have a lot of shootings in what, less than two weeks, or just back-to-back, that’s unsafe,” said witness Matthew Anoka.
