Man, 33, critically wounded in shooting

A man walked in to Temple University Hospital's emergency room with a gunshot wound to the stomach around 10 p.m. Tuesday, police said, and investigators are trying to determine the circumstances surrounding the shooting.

The 33-year-old victim, who was listed in critical condition and undergoing surgery around 11:30 p.m., was not cooperating with police, said Chief Inspector Scott Small. Cops believe he was shot outside a bar on Germantown Avenue near Indiana in North Philadelphia's Fairhill section. There, they found a live round on the street, but did not find any blood or spent shell casings.

The man was dropped off at the hospital in a private car, Small said.

Cops don't have a suspect or know what motivated the shooting. Investigators said the bar they think the man was shot near, Club Aces, appears to have been open at one point tonight, but was locked up by the time they arrived at the scene.

There is a private surveillance camera outside the establishment, police said. Detectives were working on obtaining that footage late Tuesday night.
