Two shot, one fatally, in Frankford

Police are seeking suspects in a double shooting that left one man dead last night in Frankford.

Two 25-year-old men were walking north on Akron Street near Pratt about 9:45 p.m. when two unknown men approached them, and one began firing, said Officer Christine O'Brien, a police spokeswoman. One victim was hit twice in the chest and shoulder, and the gunman then shot the other man once in the right thigh, O'Brien said. The first victim died at Temple University Hospital about 45 minutes later, while the other was treated and released, she said.

Police had no detailed description of the suspects, other than that one wore a gray hoodie and shorts while the other wore a t-shirt and shorts. The motive is listed as unknown.

Tipsters can call homicide detectives at (215) 686-3334 or -3335.
