Sunday Night Shootings Around Philadelphia Leave 2 Dead And More Wounded

By Al Novack

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Overnight shootings have left two men dead and several others hospitalized and police have few leads on any suspects.

Police say two men were shot in North Philadelphia around 2 a.m. Monday morning near 2nd and Somerset Streets.

One of the victims suffered a chest wound and was pronounced dead on arrival at Temple University Hospital.

The second man is at the same hospital, but in stable condition with a leg wound.

Meanwhile, police are hunting two gunmen who ran away from a late Sunday night shooting in Kensington that took place along the 900-block of East Russell Street. That shooting left a 19-year-old man dead at the scene.

Two bystanders, including an 18-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman were also wounded.

Both are under treatment for non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators are trying to determine if there were any surveillance cameras in the area that may yield some clues.
