A 19-year-old man is in critical condition after being shot in the stomach during an argument and fight in Kingsessing Thursday afternoon.

Lt. John Walker, of the Southwest Detective Division, gave this account:

A group of about seven people were talking on Broomall Street near 56th about 1:45 p.m. The victim touched a girl in the group inappropriately, and an argument and fistfight broke out soon after.

When the victim was on the ground, a man in the group pulled out a gun and shot the man once in his stomach.

The victim was taken by private auto to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and was listed in critical condition as of 4:30 p.m.

Witnesses were taken to the Southwest Detective Division on 55th Street near Pine for interviews, and no arrests were made.
