Two people were killed and three wounded early Monday in separate shootings in different parts of Philadelphia, police said.


The bloodshed followed a weekend during which 14 people were shot, two fatally, in the city.

In the latest shooting, officers responding to a report of gunfire found a 34-year-old man who had been shot in the head on the 600 block of East Clementine Street in Kensington about 5:45 a.m. The victim was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:02 a.m.





Around 2 a.m., officers on patrol responded to the 6200 block of Woodland Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia after hearing a single gunshot and found a 27-year-old man, “bleeding profusely from the back,” police said in a statement. Medics pronounced him dead at 2:07 a.m.

About an hour earlier, three people with bullet wounds to their legs showed up at Temple University Hospital, police said.

They told police they were going to a sandwich shop on the 4400 block of Whitaker Street in Juniata Park/Feltonville and saw two men arguing in the parking lot.




Suddenly, gunfire rang out and they jumped back into their vehicle drove to the hospital. None of the wounds were life threatening.

Investigations are under way and police reported no arrests in any of the shootings Monday.
