Police: Girl, 15, shot in head in West Philadelphia double shooting

Police are investigating a double shooting that left a teen and man wounded while they were driving in a car in West Philadelphia.

It happened on the 6200 block of Chestnut Street around 3 p.m.

According to police, a 15-year-old girl was shot once in the left side of the head. She was taken to Presbyterian Hospital in critical condition.

A 20-year-old man was also shot in the head and is currently listed in stable condition.

"I heard bang, bang, bang, bang, bang. I knew it was gunfire. I came out to take a look," said Bruce Henry.

The car he saw was dotted with bullet holes. 

"That blue car drifted over and hit that parked car and then waited a couple of minutes then the cops started coming," said Henry.

Police believe this was a targeted shooting and the gunmen fired 19 shots when the car pulled out of the gas station turning onto Chestnut. The driver crashed into a parked car after he was shot. 

FOX 29's Shawnette Wilson reports the two victims are possibly siblings.

So far, no arrests have been made and a weapon has not been recovered.
