A 26-year-old man was killed Sunday night when he and another man pulled guns on each other inside a car and opened fire in Philadelphia's Logan Section, police said. The second man was critically wounded.

Police said the men were inside a black Chevrolet Monte Carlo on the 1400 block of Wyoming Avenue about 10:50 p.m. when gunfire exploded inside the vehicle.

The front-seat passenger, identified as Leshaun Redguard, of 300 Wister Street, was shot more than once and pronounced dead on the scene at 10:57 p.m.

The second man was taken to Temple University Hospital with a bullet wound to the stomach and was listed in critical condition, police said.

The surviving victim told police that the shooting was started by a drug-related argument, said Police Inspector Joe Bartorilla. Several spent shells and three handguns were found in the car.

Police think a third man was in the car and fled.

While police were investigating, a Chevy Impala pulled up to the scene, and a few men got out and attempted to ask questions. One of the men was handcuffed and taken into custody. Police said they suspected he may have known something about the shooting.
