Two men are clinging to life this morning after they allegedly got into an argument and tussled over a gun in a North Philadelphia house.

The incident occurred at 1:22 a.m. this morning on 25th Street near Norris, police said. During the argument, the 46-year-old man who lives in the home allegedly shot his 44-year-old friend in the chest. The wounded man in turn tried to wrestle away the gun, which went off and struck the first man in the eye, police Spokeswoman Jillian Russell said. Both victims are in critical condition at Temple University Hospital. Charges are pending.
