Two brothers, ages 13 and 17, were shot to death in their Overbrook Park home Tuesday night in what Philadelphia police said may have been drug-related slayings.
Police and medics were called at 7:31 p.m. to a three-story rowhouse in the 1300 block of Westbury Drive for a reported shooting, said Chief Inspector Scott Small.
In the living room, they found the 17-year-old, who had been shot several times in the torso and head, Small said. The teen was rushed to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where he was pronounced dead at 8:06.
The 13-year-old was found in the basement with gunshot wounds to the torso, Small said. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:40.
