The two incidents followed a shooting just after 10:30 p.m. Friday where a 24-year-old man was shot twice in the left thigh while outside on the 6100 block of Greenway Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia. Police took him to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where he was listed in stable condition Saturday.
