Shootout at W. Philly repair shop

An argument got unexpectedly out of hand earlier today at the Dirty Hands Cycle repair shop in West Philadelphia.
Police sources said Dumar Combs, 18, and Waddell Wagstaff, 25, arrived together at the motorcycle and ATV repair shop at 61st and Lancaster Avenue at about 4:25 p.m.
A conversation between the two men and the wheelchair-bound owner of Dirty Hands Cycle got heated, and Combs and Wagstaff both pulled out weapons and opened fire, the sources said.
Combs was wounded once in the groin. Neither the shop owner, who was not identified by police, nor Wagstaff were wounded.
Sources said Combs limped to his car and sped off, only to crash about two blocks later. Police said he fled his vehicle, but left behind his identification.
Combs managed to get another ride to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where he was treated and listed in stable condition last night.
An arrest warrant was expected to be issued for Wagstaff on charges that include aggravated assault and weapons violations, sources said. His whereabouts were unknown.
