A man was hospitalized in critical condition after being shot on Gaskill Street near 4th in Society Hill Monday night, police said. 
The man was shot twice in his back just after 11p.m. and was taken to Jefferson University Hospital where he was undergoing surgery around midnight. Police were unsure of the victim's age.
The shooter's motive was unclear, but cops said the incident may have been a robbery or drug related. 
Police found the victim's hat, an undisclosed amount of cash and blunt wrappers next to an overturned bicycle on the corner. 
Police remained on the scene early Tuesday morning searching for evidence and interviewing neighbors and employees at nearby businesses over the sound of laughter music piping from nearby South Street. 
Police chastised several neighbors for stepping over the yellow crime scene tape blocking 4th Street - and argued with a man who demanded that an officer pass him his bicycle, which was one of four that were chained to poles within the crime scene.
