Two double shootings in Philadelphia

WEST PHILADELPHIA - September 1, 2011

At about 11:30 on Wednesday night a gunman wounded a 16-year-old boy and 29-year-old man.

It happened near the 4100 block of Pennsgrove Avenue in West Philadelphia.

The man was shot repeatedly.

Both victims are in critical condition at a local hospital.

About a half-hour earlier, two men were shot while they walked along the 2500 block of West Somerset Street in North Philadelphia.

Each man suffered gunshot wounds to the legs.

The victims -- in their 30s -- were taken to Temple University Hospital in stable condition.

The suspects ran off and remain on the loose.

Detectives are trying to find motives and suspects for the two double-shootings.
