After running behind last year’s homicide rate through much of this summer, the total number of victims is back on pace with 2013, according to the latest daily update from the Philadelphia Police Department.
Separate shooting incidents sent two men to area hospitals overnight. Both were reported in stable condition.
A 27-year-old man went to Lankenau Medical Center after he was shot around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday in the area of 56th Street and Wyalusing Avenue in West Philadelphia. A 22-year-old man was shot in the hand just before 3:30 a.m. in the area of Front and Tioga Streets in Kensington.
