Drive-by shootings wound 4 in SW Philly

Four people were wounded in two drive-by shootings in Southwest Philadelphia tonight. About 10:30 p.m., police were called to Bonaffon Street near Woodland Avenue, where they found three victims: a pregnant woman wounded in the leg; a man shot in the chest, and another man with a graze wound to the arm, said Lt. John Walker of Southwest Detectives.
Within minutes, shots rang out on nearby 67th Street, where another man was shot in the ear, Walker said. It was unclear if the incidents were related. Three victims were taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, while the fourth was taken to CHOP.

Walker said witnesses reported seeing a black car with tinted windows leaving the scene of the 67th Street shooting, while a silver town car was seen speeding from the Bonaffon Street crime scene.
