A 21-year-old man was shot twice on Union Street near Aspen in the Mantua section of West Philadelphia Tuseday night, and was hospitalized in stable condition, police said.

The man was shot once in his right leg and once in the right side of his abdomen just after 10 p.m., police said.

He was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and was listed in stable condition as of 11 p.m.

The man told police he was shot by a man who is about 5 feet 7 inches tall, was wearing a dark mask at the time and was wearing dark clothing.

The shooter was last seen running east on Fairmount Avenue from the scene.

Police were unsure of the shooter's motive Tuesday night, and no arrests were made.
