Violent Night In Philadelphia Leaves 3 Dead, 1 Critically Wounded
By Dan Wing
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia Police had another busy weekend, with violence claiming three lives, and leaving a fourth person in critical condition.
The violence started at a Grays Ferry Chinese restaurant Saturday night, where a 21-year-old man was shot in the head and later died at an area hospital.
Just about one hour later, authorities were on the scene at a West Philadelphia home, where a 31-year-old woman was found dead from gunshot wounds and head trauma.
This followed the discovery of a 41-year-old man in the closet of his Center City apartment earlier Saturday. He was also pronounced dead at the scene, with what appeared to be multiple stab wounds.
Then, early Sunday, a 40-year-old man walked into Temple University Hospital after being shot and suffering critical injuries.
None of the victims’ names have been released, and no arrests have been reported.
