A man and a woman were wounded in two separate shootings in Philadelphia's Germantown neighborhood.

Police say there were two active shooters on the 5900 block of North 21st Street around 11:20 p.m. Wednesday.

One suspect stood outside a home and allegedly fired six shots into a home.

There were eight people inside the residence, police say.

A grandmother, a 53-year-old mentally challenge male, and five children. The children ranged in ages from 5 to 15-years-old.

There was also a 28-year-old woman inside. She was struck in the shoulder after bullets came flying through a large front window.

Police say a short distance down the block, another shooter fired a gun from the corner, striking a 53-year-old man, who was walking on the sidewalk.

Both victims were taken to Einstein Medical Center for care. No word on their conditions.

It's unclear if the two shootings are connected.
