PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Two men arrested with guns after a shooting near a north Philadelphia transit station that wounded eight people last week haven’t been linked to the shooting but face charges of illegally carrying firearms, police said Monday.

Chief Inspector Frank Venore said police need the public’s help to find the person who opened fire Wednesday near the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority’s Olney station. The victims, who range in age from 17 to 71, are expected to survive but “we need to know who was brazen enough to fire a gun that day,” he said.

Vanore said the shooting itself wasn’t captured on surveillance video, but other footage from the area exists and “what we need to know is who’s who.” He said the majority of victims were innocent bystanders and if anyone was the intended target “we’re still working to connect that.”
