- (AP/WTXF) - Philadelphia police say a man is in critical condition after being shot in the face and then dragged more than 80 feet to a vacant lot.

The incident occurred on the 2400 block of N. Patton Street, around 11 p.m. Wednesday.

Police responded to a report of a shooting and arrived on scene to find a wounded man in his 30s lying in a vacant lot.
