Police are seeking suspects in two unrelated incidents, a shooting and a stabbing, that left a man and a woman hospitalized with serious injuries today.

In the first incident, a gunman shot a 47-year-old man in the head at 13th and Butler in North Philadelphia about 12:30 a.m., said Officer Christine O'Brien, a police spokeswoman. The man remains in critical condition at Temple University Hospital. Witnesses told police the two men were talking just before the shooting, so it does not appear to be random.

And at 10:40 a.m., a robber stabbed an employee, believed to be 42 years old, of the Good & Plenty Mini Market in the neck at 12th Street and Snyder Avenue in South Philly, O'Brien said. She remains in stable condition at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. The robber fled with an unknown amount of cash and a cell phone, O'Brien said.

Police reported no suspects in either incident.
