Police charged a boy with aggravated assault and related crimes on Saturday in connection with a shooting that wounded two students inside a Philadelphia high school gymnasium, but released a second boy from custody without charging him.

Police were not releasing the name of the 17-year-old suspect who was charged, because it wasn't clear if he was to be tried as an adult, nor did they identify the boy who was released. He had surrendered Friday night, hours after the 3:30 p.m. shooting in the Delaware Valley Charter High School in north Philadelphia.

The wounded boy and girl were shot in an arm, and police confirmed that they had been hit by the same bullet.

The girl was treated for her injuries and released from Albert Einstein Medical Center, and the boy was in stable condition, police said.
