Man shot on SEPTA train platform in North Philly

A 21-year-old man was in stable condition after being shot on a SEPTA Regional Rail platform in North Philadelphia late Friday afternoon, police said.

The victim was waiting in a shelter area on the northbound side of the North Broad Street Station about 4:50 p.m. when he was shot in the back and wrist, said Chief Inspector Scott Small. The victim ran into a train that had just stopped and was aided by SEPTA Transit Police. He was taken by medics to Temple University Hospital.

The victim was not cooperating with police, Small said. Five spent shell casings were recovered on the platform.

SEPTA reported residual delays on the Regional Rail system.
