Man critical after fight led to overnight shooting

- A man is fighting for his life after he was shot several times in his arm and torso, overnight in Nicetown.

Police say it happened at about 11:20pm Sunday in the 3800 block of N. Bouvier Street.

Investigators told FOX 29 News the 52-year-old victim had been involved in a fight in the neighborhood earlier in the day, and the shooting stemmed from that.

The man was taken to the hospital in a private vehicle, had surgery and is in critical condition.

Police interviewed witnesses and hope surveillance will lead them to the gunman, who was riding a black mountain bike.

Police say he is in his 20s and about 6’1"-6’2" tall. He was wearing a green jacket with fur on the hood, and dark jeans. He also had a black cap with red stripes and white snowflakes, and two strings with pom-poms hanging down.
