Philadelphia police: Man shot by gunman in vehicle then hit by another driver

The victim was taken to an area hospital and placed in critical condition.
PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police are investigating after a man was shot three times and then run over on Tuesday night.

It happened around 8:20 p.m. at 60th and Delancey streets in the city's Cobbs Creek section.

According to Philadelphia Chief Inspector Scott Small, a man in his 30s was shot in the chest, lower back and leg by a gunman who was standing through a sunroof.

Real-time crime cameras from the police department recorded the incident from two different angles, authorities said.

"You can see a dark-colored sedan going west on the Delancey from 60th (Street). Someone was standing through the open sunroof and firing shots from the sunroof at the victim," said Small.

The vehicle fled the scene after the shooting.

Small said another driver then hit the victim moments after he was shot.

"A second vehicle behind the shooter's vehicle -- another dark color vehicle -- then struck our shooting victim and actually ran him over," said Small.

Police are working to determine if there's any link between both incidents.

"Now we don't know if the vehicle that struck the victim after being shot was with the vehicle in front, which was the shooter's vehicle -- we don't know. But both vehicles left the scene west on the Delancey from 60th Street," said Small.

The victim was taken to an area hospital and placed in critical condition.

No arrests have been made.
