According to police, officers responded to Ogontz and Stenton Avenues at 12:20 a.m. on Tuesday. 

Officials say responding officers found a man walking in the area bleeding heavily from gunshot wound to his neck and face. 

Witnesses told authorities that the man got out of a Buick Sedan traveling northbound on Ogontz Avenue that stopped at the intersection, and Good Samaritans rushed to try and assist him, according to Chief Inspector Scott Small.
