A VIOLENT ATTACK in Feltonville early yesterday left a 20-year-old man dead and injured four others, including two teenage girls, police said.

Just after 12:30 a.m., officers responding to reports of gunfire found five people shot outside a home on Front Street near Rockland, said Officer Jillian Russell, a police spokeswoman.

The 20-year-old man was shot several times in his torso. He was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Russell said.

The four other victims were in stable condition last night. No information on a motive or suspect was available.
