In the third homicide in about as many hours in North Philadelphia, a 19-year-old man was pronounced dead at the hospital after he was shot around 7 o’clock Monday night.
Cops said the shooting started inside an auto-body shop at 23rd and Stewart streets – about three blocks from the scene where a 51-year-old man was gunned down earlier in the day – and spilled outside. The 19-year-old victim was hit in the back and taken to Temple University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 7:38 p.m. A second victim, a 21-year-old man, was shot in the right hand and taken to Temple University Hospital in a private vehicle. He was listed in stable condition.
Chief Inspector Scott Small said detectives were reviewing surveillance video from a camera nearby at 23rd and Jefferson streets, and that it captured four men approaching the scene then fleeing around the time of the shooting.
