Minutes earlier, a 35-year-old man was critically injured in a shooting in southwest Philadelphia.

Shortly after 10 p.m. Friday, a man was shot in the left side in northwest Philadelphia. Police said he told authorities while being taken to the hospital in critical condition that he and a friend were approached by four males who said “Give up the car” and then shot him and took his vehicle.
