Two overnight shootings in Philadelphia have left a 32-year-old man dead and two others hospitalized.

Shortly before 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, police responded to the 700 block of East Madison Street in Kensington, where they found a 32-year-old man suffering from gunshots to his head and hand. The man was pronounced dead at Temple University Hospital a half hour later.

Police did not release the victim's name because his family had not been notified. No suspect has been identified and the investigation into the killing is ongoing.

Earlier, police responded to a shooting on 5700 block of North Camac Street in Fern Rock around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday and found a 29-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds to his left side, arm and stomach.

The man was taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center in critical condition. At the hospital, he gave a description of his alleged shooter. Another man fitting that description then arrived at Temple University Hospital within the hour, suffering from gunshot wounds to the back, according to police. That man was in stable condition.

Police said a suspect was in custody but didn't specify whether that suspect was the second shooting victim or provide further details.
