Police say around 2:00 a.m. Sunday, the 35-year-old victim was in his car waiting to pick up his brother and his brother's girlfriend who had just left Kelly's Bar on the 3700 block of Park Avenue in Hunting Park.
That's when, police say, an argument occurred between the couple and others leaving the bar.
During that argument shots rang out striking the victim sitting in his car.
He was rushed to Temple University Hospital suffering from a gunshot wound to the back. He is in critical but stable condition.
No arrests have been made.
