PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A store clerk out on his break was injured by a stray bullet during a shooting in the Lawncrest section of Philadelphia that left another man dead.
It happened around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday on Rising Sun Avenue at Rosalie Street.
Officers on patrol heard the shots and arrived on the scene moments later.
They found a 26-year-old man lying on the sidewalk with multiple gunshot wounds. Officers rushed him to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
While investigators were on the scene, police were notified by Einstein Medical Center that a second shooting victim showed up. The 28-year-old man who was shot once in the hip is listed as stable.
Police say that victim works at a nearby store and was hit by a stray bullet.
"We believe the 26-year-old, who was hit multiple times, who died, was the intended target. And we believe this 28-year-old male, who was standing on the sidewalk, he's employed by one of the commercial businesses here, was outside taking a break when he was struck by gunfire. We believe that's stray gunfire," said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small.
