The boy was rushed to St. Christopher’s Hospital where he died from his injuries. The man was rushed by police to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital where he also died.

In their preliminary investigation, police determined the two were father and son.

The man had just parked a vehicle on the street near where they live when at least two shooters in a dark-colored vehicle, possibly an SUV, drove alongside and began firing, continuing to shoot at the victims’ vehicle until they drove away.

Police are investigating a possible motive. No arrests have been made.
