Northeast Times: Sixty-One Minutes

From the Northeast Times:

Philadelphia police are hunting for two gunmen involved in separate Frankford shootings early Sunday morning that claimed the life of one man and injured two other people.

The fatal incident occurred shortly after 2 a.m. on the 2000 block of Margaret St. According to police, an unknown suspect shot 27-year-old Anthony Nelson, of nearby Orthodox Street, numerous times in the torso during an argument.

A 27-year-old woman who accompanied Nelson was also shot. Her identity has not been released. She was wounded in the shoulder and listed in stable condition at Hahnemann University Hospital.

About one hour earlier, on the 1300 block of Unity St., a 17-year-old male was wounded critically outside of a sweet sixteen party at the Unity Club.

Investigators believe that the victim, whose identity was not released because he is a minor, may not have been the intended target, but instead was struck while intervening in an incident involving his cousin, said Capt. Jack McGinnis of Northeast Detectives.

The gunfire erupted at 12:59 a.m. as people gathered outside the club. The shooter may have attended the party earlier in the night before he was ejected following a dispute, McGinnis said.

The victim was wounded once in the stomach and admitted in critical condition to Frankford Hospital-Torresdale, where he underwent emergency surgery.
