Police are looking for a suspect in connection with a shooting that occurred in a second-floor apartment on Jefferson Street near Carlisle in North Philadelphia Tuesday evening.

A 19-year-old man was shot in the left arm by a man police said is between 18 and 20 years old and knows the victim personally.  

The victim went to Hahnemann University Hospital in stable condition at about 5:40, police said.

The suspect is an African-American man who police said is about 5-feet-11 inches tall, weighs about 155 pounds, has black hair and a goatee, and was wearing a black hooded sweater and Levi’s jeans at the time of the shooting.

The suspect is armed, and police said he may still be in the area.
