Fayette Street Double ShootingAccording to investigators, police responded to the block just after 10:30 p.m. and found an 18-year-old man suffering from two gunshot wounds and a 22-year-old man with a wrist wound.

They rushed both victims to Albert Einstein Medical Center, where they were listed in stable condition. Police said they located three fired shell casings and a pellet gun at the scene but were not sure of the motive. CBS3 and Philly.com have more information.

As we previously reported, a 28-year-old man was also critically wounded Monday night in the Castor section of Philadelphia. Five people have been killed and 12 have been wounded in Philadelphia shootings reported so far in February. Check our earlier reports for more information.
