PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police say gunfire in northeast Philadelphia killed two people and injured two others overnight.

Officers responding shortly after 11 p.m. Sunday to the Kensington neighborhood found three victims, including a 38-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the head who was pronounced dead minutes later.

A 33-year-old man shot in the back was taken to Temple University Hospital and pronounced dead shortly after 1 a.m. Monday.

Two other victims, age 22 and 46, were shot in the legs and taken to hospitals.

Chief inspector Scott Small said 15 spent shell casings were found, some on the sidewalk and some on the highway, and it appeared they were all the same caliber. Police were reviewing surveillance video but said no weapon was recovered and no arrests have been made.

This story has been corrected to note that second victim died early Monday rather than early Sunday.
