PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A street shooting in Philadelphia has left one man dead and another critically wounded.

City police say the shooting was reported around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Responding officers found a 38-year-old man lying on the sidewalk, bleeding heavily from his face and chest. The man was taken to a hospital but died there a short time later.

The second victim, a 22-year-old man, was shot in each of his arms. He walked to a hospital and remained there Thursday in critical condition.

A motive for the shooting remains under investigation. Authorities say the two men may have known each other and had a prior argument over money.

The victims’ names have not been released. It’s also not clear if one or both men were armed.


This story has been corrected to show the man who died was 38 years old, not 25 years old.
