A 24-year-old man was in critical condition after he was shot in the chest in Hunting Park Wednesday night.

Cops said the victim was outside on Airdrie Street near Old York Road shortly before 10:30 p.m. when someone opened fire, hitting him once in the chest.

Police took the man to Temple University Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition around 10:45 p.m.

Police said they know who the shooter is and are searching for him, but he hadn’t been arrested as of 10:45 p.m.

No one witnessed the shooting, and it was not captured on surveillance video. Cops found the victim’s blood at the scene, but no shell casings or weapon.
