Cops: Argument over woman led to quadruple shooting

The man who police said opened fire on four other men, wounding all of them, during an argument over a woman in North Philadelphia Tuesday night was arrested a little more than an hour after the shooting.

Cops said gunfire erupted on Gratz Street just north of Cumberland at 9:11 p.m., injuring four men ages 22, 27, 28 and 46. Three were shot in the legs, police said, and the fourth, the 28-year-old man, suffered a gunshot wound to the groin.

All were rushed to Temple University Hospital, where they were listed in stable condition.

Chief Inspector Scott Small said the woman the men had been fighting over was taken to be interviewed by police and help identify the shooter. He added that the shooter, a 20-year-old man who sped off in a vehicle immediately following the shooting, was apprehended a little more than an hour later at 41st and Cambridge streets in West Philly’s Belmont section.
