Argument leads to gunfire in S. Philly


An apparent argument over a girl caused gunshots to ring out in South Philadelphia earlier tonight. Two men – one 19, the other 20 – were both wounded in neck on Wolf Street near 26th shortly before 8:30 p.m., said Lt. Martin Derbyshire, of South Detectives.

Both victims were admitted to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in critical condition. Derbyshire said investigators found two guns at the scene. It was unclear if the victims had attempted to return fire at the shooter, he added. Tipsters can contact investigators at 215-686-3013.
