    WASHINGTON: Two children and five adults were injured in a shooting at a block party in Philadelphia Saturday, when a suspect randomly opened fire on a crowd, according to officials and local media. News station WCAU said one of the victims was an 18-month-old baby who was grazed with a bullet in the neck. The other was a 10-year-old boy. The other five victims, aged 15 to 25, were taken to hospitals after the shooting, which occurred around 10:00 pm (0200 GMT) in the largest city in the northeast state of Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, in a similar incident in Detroit Saturday, one person was killed and nine others injured when a suspect opened fire at a party on a basketball court. The shootings come after nine African Americans were killed in a church in Charleston, South Carolina, by a suspected white supremacist.
