The victim was rushed to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and stabilized.

Just minutes later and less than a mile away, a 42-year-old woman was shot in the face and in her chest inside of a home at 58th and Delancey Streets.

The victim told officers that her husband shot her while inside their residence.
