A 32-year-old man was pronounced dead at Albert Einstein Medical Center Sunday night after another man brought him to the hospital shortly after 7:30 p.m., police said.

The victim was pronounced dead of a gunshot wound to the left side of his face at Einstein at 7:41 p.m., cops said. Investigators said the man who drove the victim to the hospital told them the man had been shot in Springfield Township, Montgomery County.

Police said cops in Springfield did receive a call for gunshots earlier in the night, but said they hadn’t yet located a shooting scene.

Philadelphia homicide detectives and detectives from Montgomery County were working together to determine the circumstances surrounding the fatal shooting, and the man who dropped the victim off at the hospital was being held for questioning, police said.
