Cops: Three shot in Chester overnight


Three men were injured by gunfire - two fatally - in separate incidents in Chester last night, according to police.

Around 11:26 p.m. on 7th Street near Lamokin, an 18-year-old old man and a 22-year-old man were shot in the back multiple times, police said. The 18-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene and the 22-year-old was later pronounced dead at Crozer-Chester Medical Center.

At 12:12 a.m., a 20-year-old man was shot in the head while driving on McDowell Avenue near 9th Street, police said. Initial reports indicated there may have been as many as 15 to 40 shots fired during the incident. As a result of the gunshot wound to his head, the victim lost control of his car and crashed into several parked vehicles.

Police said the victim was transported to Crozer-Chester Medical Center, where his condition remains unknown.

Police have not released the names of the victims or any possible suspects in either case.
