A man was hit by gunfire seven times Thursday afternoon in a double shooting outside an auto-repair shop in Southwest Philadelphia, police said.
Around 3:30 p.m., two men walked up to a customer who was having his car fixed at the shop in the 5400 block of Paschall Avenue and opened fire, said Lt. John Walker of Southwest Detectives.
The victim, a 34-year-old man police believe was the intended target, was reported in critical condition Thursday at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. A 39-year-old shop employee who was under the hood of the car was shot in the left leg. He was reported in stable condition at the same hospital.
