Meek Mill wants to use his platform to help kids in his hometown after eight teens were caught in the crossfire of three gunmen.  

Meek Mill is offering his services to the Mayor of Philadelphia following a mass shooting in the city which saw eight teens shot while waiting for a bus after school. 

According to NBC10 Philadelphia, two students are in critical condition following the incident on Wednesday afternoon (March 6). A 16-year-old boy is fighting for his life after being shot nine times while the others are in stable condition.  

Cops say teens were waiting for a bus when three people exited a vehicle and began shooting. Philadelphia police commissioner Kevin Bethel says the gunmen fired more than 30 shots. The incident is the fourth shooting involving the city’s transit system in four days. Cops are yet to make arrests in any of the shootings.

Meek Mill was following the updates on social media as the news unfolded.  

“If you black or brown talk about this,” he wrote alongside a news report of the shooting. “It’s kids that’s gonna pick up guns because they think they gonna die b4 they turn 21 for a gun license! You will go from Xbox to Glock because of your environment … and get locked up for trying to survive it it’s terrible!”

“I wanna help her especially with education,” Meek wrote. “I have dreams of working with the Yas foundation with dream chasers academy to offer these kids resources with technology and to travel outside of that environment to understand life! I’m in on reform ima join helping with education!
