Man shot, collapses outside Mayfair house

Po­lice say he was crit­ic­ally wounded after an ar­gu­ment with the shoot­er, who re­mains at large.

A shoot­ing in­side a May­fair house spilled in­to the sur­round­ing com­munity early Sat­urday when a crit­ic­ally wounded man stumbled to Frank­ford and Rob­bins av­en­ues be­fore col­lapsing.

Patrol of­ficers found the bleed­ing 34-year-old vic­tim in the street at the busy in­ter­sec­tion shortly be­fore 1:30 a.m. He had wounds of the left thigh and lower back and was taken to Aria Health-Tor­res­dale.

Phil­adelphia po­lice have not re­leased his iden­tity in keep­ing with their policy of not dis­clos­ing the names of sur­viv­ing crime vic­tims, said Of­ficer Christine O’Bri­en, a de­part­ment spokes­wo­man.

Wit­nesses told in­vest­ig­at­ors that the gun­fire oc­curred in a house on the 3100 block of Levick St. and res­ul­ted from an un­spe­cified ar­gu­ment between the vic­tim and an­oth­er man, neither of whom lived at the ad­dress.

The shoot­er has been de­scribed as a black man, about 20-years-old, 5-feet-11-inches tall and thin with a dark com­plex­ion and Sunni-style beard. He wore a green T-shirt and blue jeans. ••
