She was transported to Temple Hospital in critical condition, authorities said. Police did not provide information about the condition of the unborn child.

The victim’s injuries are not life-threatening, according to police.

Authorities said a 32-year-old man was shot in the left arm and left leg at around 6:15 p.m. Wednesday on the 3600 block of Germantown Avenue in North Philadelphia.

He was rushed to Temple Hospital and listed in critical condition.

In Kingsessing, two people were hospitalized after shots rang out just before 10:30 a.m. Wednesday on the 900 block of S. Paxon Street.

A 16-year-old boy who had been shot in the right ear was transported to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, authorities said. The other victim, a 21-year-old man, was struck in the right side of his hip.

Both were being treated for nonlife-threatening injuries.

Police reported no arrests in connection with any of the shootings.

Arrest made after incident on plane

A passenger was apprehended Thursday morning at Philadelphia International Airport after causing a disturbance aboard a plane en route from Orlando, Florida, authorities said.

The man allegedly told an attendant that he wanted to talk to the pilot while he was riding an American Airlines flight, police said. He was escorted back to his seat, where he sat with a passenger and airline employee until landing.

In a statement, American Airlines said he was displaying “erratic behavior” and that crew members took precautions and monitored the passenger.

No one was injured, and the plane landed without incident.

Initially, police said the man had been trying to break into the cockpit, a statement that was later corrected.

He is not expected to face charges, according to authorities.

Investigators looking for SUV

Detectives are searching for a newer-model white Cadillac SR-style SUV after a hit-and-run crash left a woman dead Saturday in South Philadelphia.

Elisa Osano had just crossed Oregon Avenue at 8th Street when she fell into the roadway just after 5 p.m. and was hit by the vehicle, which was heading east on Oregon, police said. The driver kept going, and the SUV was last spotted on the 400 block of Oregon.

Police did not provide Osano’s age but said she lived a block away from the scene of the crash.

Investigators are asking anyone who owns a similar car and was in the vicinity of the incident to call the Accident Investigation Division at 215-685-3180/3181 or dial 911.

Over the past several days, three other people have been killed in collisions on Philadelphia streets.

A 61-year-old driver died after her vehicle was involved in a head-on crash Tuesday morning at the corner of Frankford Avenue and Aldine Street in Mayfair. The driver of the other car was also transported to the hospital.

Earlier in the morning, a 48-year-old woman was killed in a hit-and-run crash while getting into her car on the 5600 block of Upland Way in Overbrook, according to police.

On Monday, just before 7 p.m., Leonid Kadomsy, 37, of Bustleton, was standing near his disabled car on the 7500 block of Roosevelt Boulevard in Rhawnhurst when he was hit by a car.

The driver fled on foot, and Kadomsy died a short time later, authorities said.
