Man Shot During Argument With Driver in Rittenhouse – NBC10 Philadelphia

A man was shot during an argument with a driver in Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse neighborhood Wednesday evening, police said.

According to police, the 41-year-old man was shot in the lower abdomen along South 20th Street near Sansom Street shortly after 7 p.m.

The man, who appeared to be intoxicated, was walking south in the driving lane on 20th Street when he began arguing with two men in a car traveling north, Philadelphia Police Capt. John Walker said.

The argument escalated, Walker said, and the man walked towards the car and started punching through the open window.

A person in the car then fired at least one shot, striking him in the lower abdomen, Walker said.

Police rushed him to the hospital where he was listed in critical condition and undergoing surgery.

SkyForce10 overhead showed crime scene tape marking off 20th Street in between Shake Shack and a construction site.

Walker said the car took off after the shooting. They’re asking the men involved to come forward.

No arrests have been made, police said.
