A MAN WAS fighting for his life last night after he was shot a few yards outside a concert dedicated to peace, police said.
Just after 8:30 p.m., police received reports of someone shot at the Dell Music Center in Strawberry Mansion, Chief Inspector Scott Small said.
Officers found a 20-year-old man lying in the center's parking lot, on 33rd Street near Huntingdon. He had been shot twice in his abdomen and right thigh, and was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he remained in critical condition, Small said.
The victim was one of about 600 attendees of "Philly Helping Philly," a rap concert held to raise awareness of, and put an end to, violence in the city.
