Several shootings erupted in North Philadelphia on Thursday morning, leaving three men wounded and their assailants at large.
Just after midnight on the 4800 block of Darrah Street, a 22-year-old man told police he heard gunshots before he was suddenly struck in the hip, police said.
"The bullet actually went through his hip and out the other side, but he was somehow able to run to Aria-Frankford" Hospital, said Philadelphia Police Lt. John Stanford.
The victim would not cooperate with police, Stanford said, and declined to describe the shooter or give the name of a witness he had been speaking to just before he was shot. The victim left the hospital late Thursday morning in stable condition.
