PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Two men were shot in broad daylight at a playground in North Philadelphia.  It happened just after noontime today at the Lindley Playground, in the 800 block of West Duncannon Street.

Philadelphia police say two men were struck by bullets:  a 23-year-old man was hit in the ankle and a 34-year-old man was shot in the hand and forearm.

Both were taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center, where they were reported to be in stable condition.

Lindley Playground is just behind Thurgood Marshall Elementary School.
