Two Men Shot While Pumping Air In Tires At Gas Station


On Friday, about 1:30 a.m., two men came under gunfire as they were pumping air in their tires at a gas station in Philadelphia.

The incident occurred on the 400 block of West Cheltenham Avenue, close to Oak Lane Rd.

Authorities say that two men and a friend were at the air pump as a white SUV pulled up alongside them.

Someone then rolled down a rear passenger window and shot at the men at least four times.

A 29-year-old man was hit by gunfire in his foot while another man in his late 20s to early 30s was hit in the hand. They were both transported to a medical facility in stable condition. The friend was uninjured.

The SUV was seen leaving the scene headed East.

A motive for the shooting isn’t known, and no apprehensions have been made in the matter.
