Police are investigating a double shooting early Sunday at Brothers bar in Kensington.

The shooting happened around 1:15 a.m. at the bar, located at the corner of Water and Ontario streets. Police said a 43-year-old Hispanic male suffered a graze wound to the head and a 28-year-old Hispanic male was shot once in the leg.

Police said someone entered through a side door, walked up behind the first victim and fired, narrowly missing the back of his head. The second victim was found down the street from the bar and may have been the shooter.

Investigators recovered a handgun at the scene, but so far no arrests have been made. Police are reviewing surveillance video of the incident.

Both men are listed in critical condition at Temple University Hospital. Police did not release their names.
