Police are investigating two separate shootings that left a 32-year-old man critically wounded in West Philadelphia, and an 11-year-old boy hospitalized in stable condition after he was shot in North Philadelphia.

Shots were fired on Parkside Avenue near 52nd Street around 9:45 p.m., police said.

A man was wounded once in the lower side of his back and was taken by medics to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Shortly after that incident, an 11-year-old boy suffered a graze wound to his right leg when he was shot on 11th Street near Norris, near the eastern edge of Temple University's campus in North Philadelphia at 10:03 p.m., police said.

He was taken to St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children and was listed in stable condition.

Cops were unsure of the motives behind the shootings, and detailed descriptions of the suspects were not immediately available.
