Two Men Wounded in Eastwick Drive-by Shooting

Two men are wounded, one critically, after a drive-by shooting in Eastwick last night.

The men were sitting in their car on the 2400 block of Rosella Street shortly before 11 p.m. talking to a woman, 42, when a black SUV pulled up, stopped and drove off.

Shortly after, the SUV returned and a man leaned out and began firing. Both victims were hit numerous times in the torso and extremities and were taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

The first victim, 29, went directly to emergency surgery and is currently in critical condition. The second victim, 27, is scheduled for surgery later in the day but is stable.

Police are seeking a black male in connection with the shooting.
