PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia police say a 16-year-old boy and eight others were taken into custody after a SWAT situation developed following a report of shots fired.

Police tell KYW-TV (https://cbsloc.al/1yOz31o ) that undercover officers responded to reports of the gunfire Sunday night, and that a SWAT team was called in after a barricade situation was declared about 8:30 p.m.

Police say the 16-year-old was identified as the shooter, though they’ve stopped short of saying who he shot, why or how badly anyone was injured in the process.

Police say the other eight people taken into custody were being questioned and may not be charged with crimes.

Police say the 16-year-old is being charged, but they didn’t immediately release his name or the charges. The investigation was continuing Monday.
