PHILADELPHIA -

A disturbing video released Thursday by police shows a teenager firing a handgun into a crowded SEPTA train after a Bulls-76ers game.

Two victims were shot Wednesday night on the westbound SETPA El train at 46th and Market.

Instigators with the Philadelphia Police Department say the gunman had just exited the train when he turned around and fired once at a 35-year-old man.

Police say the shot passed through the man and also struck a bystander.

Police say the gunman and another suspect then fled on foot from the El platform in an unknown direction.

A relative of the man who was shot, seen in the video wearing a red Chicago Bulls sweatshirt, tells FOX 29's Lauren Cohn he is still in shock.

Police say the man was celebrating his team's victory when the two teenage suspects started yelling profanities.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
