A 17-year-old male was seriously wounded on Northumberland Avenue Thursday night. The teen, who was shot in the chest, is listed in serious condition at Erie County Medical Center Friday morning, police said.

Police responded to Northumberland just after 8 p.m. Thursday, officials said.

Much of the street, which runs between East Ferry and Scajaquada streets, was cordoned off by police crime scene tape.

Police are continuing to investigate, city spokesman Michael J. DeGeorge said Friday morning.
