Those victims were rushed to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center.

A 63-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to his head and chest. He is listed in critical condition.

A third victim, a John Doe, was also taken to Penn with a gunshot wound to his arm and foot. He is listed in stable condition.

A fourth victim, an 18-year-old male, was treated for a gunshot wound to his foot and then released.

He says he took off running, and felt he was shot in the foot.

He then stopped an unknown person who drove him to the hospital.
