Kensington shooting leaves man, 27, critically wounded

A 27-year-old man is clinging to life after being shot up to nine times on a Kensington street corner Monday night, police said. 


Shots rang out on the corner of Front and Westmoreland streets around 8:15 p.m. and the unidentified victim was wounded in his torso, back and right leg, said Chief Inspector Scott Small. 


Medics took the victim to Temple University Hospital where he was listed in critical condition as of 10 p.m., police said. 


Twelve shell casings were found on the scene, and neighbors leaned through their second and third-floor bay windows overlooking Front Street to watch police search for additional evidence just before 10 p.m. 


There were no witnesses and a detailed description of the suspect was not immediately available
