GERMANTOWN - June 27, 2013

Both shootings happened within hours apart on the 3000 block of Germantown Avenue.

The victim was rushed to Temple University Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police are trying to determine if the 38-year-old victim was on the street with friends starting a memorial for the 19-year-old victim when he was shot.

Several witnesses were taken to the police station for questioning.
