Man Shot On Center City SEPTA Subway Concourse

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia and SEPTA police are investigating a shooting on a subway concourse that happened early Tuesday morning.

The shooting happened at about 3 a.m. inside SEPTA’s Broad Street Line at Broad and Walnut Streets.

According to investigators, a 37-year-old man was shot in what could be a drug deal gone bad.

The victim was shot once in the neck during the altercation and he was taken to Hahnemann University Hospital. He is listed in stable condition, but he is expected to live.

The gunman fled the scene and remains at large.

Investigators are interviewing possible witnesses in hopes of gaining additional information. The shooting remains under investigation.

    The concourse is open 24/7 because PATCO does not shut down their subway at night like SEPTA does.

    Hopefully SEPTA’s security cameras were working, which was part of a recent $100 million smart stations and safety enhancement program.

  2. Stephanie Patterson says:

    Right – if the subway shuts down at midnight, ALL gates should be locked. It will still be nice to have patrols and working surveillance cameras 24/7, no matter what. And you expect me to ride the subway?

  3. Erik says:

    Orage line stops at 1201 am. Why was the concourse still open at 3am?

  4. Jim Wilmer says:

    People have video cameras protecting their homes. You would think at Broad and Walnut you would have some. If it was a drug trade gone bad, maybe because of the lack of cameras, the location was selected!!!

  5. Ceht says:

    Why was it necessary to say ‘but he’s expected to live’? That wasn’t necessary, nor was it good journalism. If he were in critical condition, then that phrase would make sense.

  6. Lt Thomas Macartney says:

    Transit Police what a joke!

    Any taxpayer involved?
