Police: Love Triangle Behind West Philadelphia Shootings
NBC 10 quotes Chief Inspector Scott Small on what happened: Police found a 34-year-old Cobbs Creek man shot in the face; he was able to tell officers he’d been shot through the screen door. Shortly afterward, a 41-year-old woman was shot at her home at 58th and Delancey.
“Preliminary information indicates to us that they may be related and that it may be domestic in nature,” Small told NBC 10. The station’s Christine Maddela reports the shooter is suspected of previously or currently being in a relationship with the female victim; the male victim is the woman’s new beau.
The woman is in critical condition at Penn. Wednesday night’s incident — which happened just before midnight — comes just a day after two double shootings in West and North Philly.
