Cops investigate Germantown double shooting


Police were investigating a double shooting in Germantown Sunday night.

The two men shot, ages 19 and 20, were outside on Henley Street near Manheim just after 7:30 p.m. when they were each shot twice in the back, cops said. Both were taken by a good Samaritan to Temple University Hospital and listed in stable condition.

Police said they were looking for four men in connection with the shooting: One with a red shirt and blue shorts, one with a white shirt, dark complexion and a beard, one with a white T-shirt and one with a yellow shirt.

Cops said they were unsure what motivated the shooting, and no arrests had been made around 9 p.m. Sunday.
