PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A man is clinging to life after he was robbed and shot by two masked men in East Germantown.
Philadelphia police were called out to East Armat Street, just before 1 a.m. Monday. That’s where they found the 21-year-old victim, with a gunshot wound in his stomach.
The man told police he was walking on East Woodlawn Street when he was approached by two masked men. The victim says the men announced a robbery and even though he gave up his wallet, one of the suspects still shot him.
“He was able to walk about a half-block to his house and that’s where police found him. We did find a crime scene on the unit block of East Woodlawn Street, and it consists with one spent shell casing so we know the perpetrators had a semi-automatic gun,” said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small.
The victim remains in critical condition.
Police say they are looking for a silver car. They are hoping surveillance cameras in the area can help with the investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
