PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — A man found dead in a car in Philadelphia’s Germantown neighborhood could be linked to a shooting victim who showed up at a hospital.
It happened just before 1:30am on Friday at the West Apsley Street apartment block.
Medics and police responded to reports of a shooting.
They found the 25-year-old victim in a parked Nissan sedan with a gunshot wound to the right side of his chest.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police believe the victim was shot outside the vehicle and was able to get back in the car and close the door.
One of the victim’s sneakers was found outside the Nissan and the other inside.
Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said the Nissan had no bullet holes. Seven spent cartridge cases were discovered outside the vehicle.
A few minutes later, police were notified of a 21-year-old shooting victim who had entered Temple University Hospital.
He suffered from gunshot wounds to the chest and left arm. He was placed in stable condition.
