    Sandrea Williams, 17, was just starting her life and should not be dead | Jenice Armstrong
    I'm sick of candlelight vigils. Sick of writing about dead young people. Sick of antiviolence marches that don't make a difference. You probably are, too. The constant onslaught of shootings takes a collective toll on our psyche. We become desensitized. But then there are cases like that of Sandrea Williams that stay with you.

Police: West Philly triple shooting that killed girl, 17, was 'almost like a terror attack'

Shortly before 10:30 p.m. Friday, two gunmen crept up through a driveway on the 300 block of North Simpson Street and fired “23 shots in approximately seven seconds” at a group of at least six teens hanging out near the intersection of Simpson and Carlton Streets, Ryan said.

In an interview Saturday, Sandrea’s mother, Nadia Syblis, 34, said she had been sitting on her front steps talking to an older brother when she heard the gunshots. She ran inside, then came back out after she saw someone lying on the 6400 block of Carlton, then realized it was her daughter.

"Five teens were shot in two separate incidents in the city Friday night, including a 17-year-old girl who was killed, police said. The fatal shooting occurred about 10:30 p.m. on Carlton Street, near Simpson Street, in West Philadelphia. Police Lt. John Walker of Southwest Detectives said two gunmen fired at least 22 shots at someone who was on Carlton Street, but police do not know who that target was. The teenage girl, who was standing on Carlton, was shot in the neck, leg, and side, Walker said. She was taken by police to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead at 10:45 p.m. A 17-year-old male friend was shot in the right thigh and taken to Penn Presbyterian. Another male friend, 15, was shot in the left thigh and taken by private vehicle to Lankenau Medical Center. Both were in stable condition, Walker said. The girl’s mother had been sitting on her front steps on the 300 block of North Simpson Street, which faces Carlton, and heard the shots, Walker said."
