A 21-year-old innocent bystander was struck by gunfire Monday night after police say a triple shooting occurred in North Philadelphia. 

Police found two shooting victims when they responded to report of gunshots on the 2700 block of West Montgomery Avenue at 9:30 p.m. 

Police say a 29-year-old man was shot in the leg and arm. He was rushed to Einstein Hospital via police, where he was placed in stable condition.  

They also found a 21-year-old man inside a residence who had been shot in the leg. The 21-year-old was sitting on the couch watching TV when a bullet came through the aluminum siding of the house and struck him in the leg. 

He was also taken to Einstein and placed in stable condition. 

While investigating, police say a third victim arrived at Temple Hospital via private vehicle with gunshot wounds to the arm. That victim, a 28-year-old man, was listed in critical condition and is expected to survive. 

Investigators found 28 shell casings as they investigated two separate crime scenes, one on the 1800 block of North Etting Street and the other at Montgomery Avenue and North Marston Street.

Police say the shooters are believed to be two unknown suspects who were seen in a dark-colored SUV.

Cameras in the area are being reviewed. This is an ongoing investigation.
