A 52-year-old man was critically wounded in a shooting Friday night on Saul Street near Bridge in Frankford, police said. 

 

Shots were fired just before 10:30 p.m. and the man was wounded in his chest, abdomen and legs. 

 

Police were unsure of exactly how many times the man was wounded, but said they found 11 .45-caliber shell casings on the sidewalk where the man was shot. 

 

Officers from the 15th District took the victim to Temple University Hospital and officials remained on the scene around 11:15 p.m. searching for evidence while neighbors looked on from behind their screen doors. 

 

There were no witnesses, police said, and a detailed description of the suspect was not immediately available.
