PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A shooter opened fire on a car stopped at a traffic light in Philadelphia, killing a passenger and wounding the driver before the car struck a nearby pole.

The shooting happened around 11:25 p.m. Monday. The shooter walked up to the vehicle and fired multiple shots before fleeing the scene on foot, city police said.

The driver then drove for about 100 feet before the vehicle struck the pole.

The 25-year-old passenger was shot multiple times, while the man driving the vehicle suffered an arm injury. Both were taken to a hospital, where the passenger was pronounced dead a short time later.

Further details on the driver’s injuries were not disclosed, although they were not believed to be life-threatening. The names of the two victims have not been released.



A motive for the shooting remains under investigation.
