Philadelphia Police tell CBS 3 both men were duct-taped.

A man in his 20s was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators say he was shot execution-style.

A second man in his 20s was shot three times, but was able to free himself. He was taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center where he is listed in critical, but stable condition.
