The Philadelphia Police Department is investigating a double shooting that left two people injured in Frankford on Wednesday morning. 

Officials say the shooting occurred just after 2 a.m. on the 5200 block of Jackson Street. 

According to Chief Inspector Scott Small, 15th District officers responded to numerous 911 calls about a shooting in the area. 

Police and medics arrived on location and found a 24-year-old woman in the driver's seat of a Dodge SUV with a gunshot wound to her left side and a 22-year-old man who was outside of the car shot in the left arm, Small said. 

Officials say both victims were together during the time of the shooting. 

Both were transported to Jefferson-Torresdale Hospital, where they are in stable condition, according to officials.


The Dodge SUV was struck at least 16 times on the driver's side, Small said.
