Three men remained in critical condition and three teens were in stable condition yesterday following several shootings in the city over the weekend.
At 6:13 a.m. yesterday, a 27-year-old man was shot once in the head at 9th Street and Hunting Park Avenue, in Hunting Park, according to police.
The man, who was not identified, was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.
Around 1:38 a.m. yesterday, a 24-year-old man was shot multiple times at Front and Dock streets, near Penn's Landing.
He was taken to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, where he remained in critical but stable condition, police said.
Three teenagers fared slightly better with their injuries Saturday night, when gunshots broke out in a crowd of about 100 people gathered at Ardleigh and Haines streets, in Awbury Park, Germantown, cops said.
A 19-year-old man who was shot once in the left leg, a 16-year-old girl who suffered a graze wound to her head and a 15-year-old girl who was shot in her right ankle all remained in stable condition at Albert Einstein Medical Center, according to police.
Police said that a large fight apparently broke out on the road and five men - who either fired shots from inside a tan Saab or Honda or got into such a vehicle shortly after the shooting - may be responsible.
Police could not confirm reports that a 12-year-old girl and another individual may have been struck by the car as it fled the scene.
The weekend violence started Saturday morning with a double-shooting on Sommers Road near 75th Avenue, in West Oak Lane.
At 2:24 a.m., a 20-year-old man was shot in the face and chest, and a 26-year-old woman was shot in the left foot, police said.
Both were rushed to Einstein, where the man remained in critical condition and the woman in stable.
Police are seeking motives and suspects in all the incidents. Anyone with information concerning any of these incidents is urged to call 215-686-8477.
