Authorities say five men were shot and wounded, one critically, after being ambushed by three teenagers in North Philadelphia.

Police said three males broke away from a group of 10 or 11 males walking down a street just before 5:30 p.m. last Friday, and surveillance video shows three teenagers shortly afterward firing at the group.

Police Commissioner Richard Ross said the teens, estimated at no more than 15 years old, “were lying in wait waiting for those guys.’’

A 26-year-old man shot in the head and wrist was in critical condition. Others, in stable condition, included a 25-year-old shot in the back, a 26-year-old hit in the forearms, hand and thigh, a 27-year-old hit in the heel and a 32-year-old hit in the back.
