Man wounded in Frankford drive-by shooting


A 32-year-old man is in stable condition after being shot four times during a bizarre shooting in Frankford, police said.

The shooting happened around 3 p.m. on Wakeling Street near Worth Street. Police said the victim was driving on Wakeling when a man driving a blue car pulled up next to him and started shooting, hitting him once in the left leg, twice in the left arm, and once in the left ear.

Fortunately, the victim was able to maintain control of the car and drove himself to a pizza shop near the corner of Orthodox and Torresdale where someone called 9-1-1. The victim was taken to Temple University Hospital and listed in stable condition.

No arrests have been made.
