Twin brothers shot, one of them killed outside club

- One man is dead and his twin brother in critical condition after a shooting outside a Northeast Philadelphia nightclub. A third person was also wounded.

FOX 29’s Steve Keeley reported it happened at about 4am outside the Candelas Bar Restaurant in the 700 block of Adams Avenue.

It started with words exchanged. Then, a man took out a gun, pistol-whipped another, and shot a 25-year-old man.

Police found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound to his chest. He was taken to the hospital but pronounced dead less than a half-hour later.

His twin brother was shot in his stomach. He is listed as critical.

Plus, a 40-year-old man who may have been hit by a stray bullet got to the hospital in a private vehicle. Police say he is listed in stable condition.

No names have been released.

Investigators have been using flashlights, trying to find bullet shells. They’re also hoping surveillance video may help.

But police told Steve they have a pretty good description of the getaway car. It was a yellow hatchback with four doors and a Delaware license plate.
