PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A Delaware County man is fighting for his life as police search for two suspects in connection to the Monday night shooting.
Police say the incident happened at 7th and Wallace Streets in North Philadelphia just after 10:30 p.m. That’s when officers found a 54-year-old man from Upper Darby lying on the sidewalk, not breathing.
Police say he was shot in the neck while walking his mother’s dog.
“He was bleeding heavily. He was shot at least one time to the neck,” said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small.
“There’s a possibility robbery was the motive because we did find some change on the scene and sometimes that comes from perpetrators going through the victims pocket but we’re not certain the motive,” Scott said.
Police rushed the victim to Hahnemann University Hospital, but detectives are not sure if he will survive.
Detectives tell us they’re now reviewing video from city surveillance cameras captured part of the incident.
“Hopefully, those cameras and private cameras recorded something in the area that can help us with this critical shooting,” Small said.
Police say the suspects are described as two black men wearing all black.
