Two men were clinging to life after they allegedly got into an argument early yesterday and struggled over a gun in a North Philadelphia house.
The incident happened about 1:22 a.m. on 25th Street near Norris, police said. During the argument, a 46-year-old man who lives in the home allegedly shot a 44-year-old man in the chest. The wounded man tried to wrestle away the gun, which went off and struck the first man in the eye, police spokeswoman Jillian Russell said. Both victims were in critical condition at Temple University Hospital. Charges are pending.

ELSEWHERE: SEX-TAPE UPSHOT
A former commissioner in central Pennsylvania's Cumberland County faces electronic monitoring, fines and community service after being sentenced for hiring prostitutes and secretly taping men having sex in his home.
Bruce Barclay, 51, received five years of intermediate punishment, which is similar to probation, his attorney, Matt Gover, said yesterday. He'll spend the first nine months on electronic monitoring.
Barclay was convicted last month on charges of unlawful use of a computer, unlawful duplication, invasion of privacy and patronizing prostitutes.
Gover says Barclay apologized in court and is eager to put the matter behind him.
Barclay resigned from office in April 2008 after a man who later recanted told police that Barclay had raped him.
