A neighborhood pharmacist was critically wounded in a shooting during a possible robbery Monday night in the city's Society Hill section, police said.
Police said the shooting occurred about 9:50 p.m. on Lawrence Street north of Pine Street. The victim was transported by police to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.
A resident who asked to be identified only by his first name, Rob, said he heard yelling outside his house and then a loud pop.
He looked outside and saw "the victim was lying flat" on the ground and a man in a hoodie was running north on Lawrence toward Spruce Street.
