An argument between a North Philadelphia man and his stepbrother ended in gunfire Monday afternoon, police said.

Cops said the victim, 37, and his 27-year-old stepbrother were fighting inside a house where they both live on 9th Street near York. The 27-year-old then pulled a gun and shot his stepbrother twice in the back, Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

The victim was taken to Temple University Hospital in critical condition, but was expected to survive, Small said.

The shooter was last seen running east on Diamond Street from 9th, according to police. Cops were still on the hunt for him later Monday night.
