A 27-Year-Old Cook Was Shot Leaving Work in West Philadelphia

According to ABC, a 27-year-old man was shot twice in the legs on the 4900 block of Catharine Street around 10:30 p.m. Monday.

The 27-year-old man is a cook at a nearby restaurant and as he was leaving work, he was shot and taken to the hospital, where he is currently in stable condition.

When police arrived at the crime scene, they noticed a trail of blood stretching an entire block that led to a 28 year-old-man who had been shot four times. The second 28-year-old man was taken to the hospital and is in critical but stable condition. He is also in custody for questioning.

The police are trying to piece together the two seemingly connected crime scenes and are checking surveillance footage in the area to help their investigation.

This investigation is still ongoing as police gather more evidence.

Legal Rights for Shooting Victims

Attorney Brian Kent is an experienced shooting victims lawyer. Read below as Kent shares the legal options for victims of a shooting. "Gun violence is a severe issue in America, and while we hope to one day live in a world free of it, victims of shootings need to know their legal rights. In some instances, shooting victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit if your injuries can be attributed to a property owner's negligence. Instances to which this applies can be inadequate security or cameras." "As a shooting victim, determining your best course of legal action requires legal guidance from an experienced attorney with a track record of helping shooting victims file lawsuits. Many states have crime victim compensation funds for victims of violent crimes. To find out if you can get a financial settlement, it is in your best interest to hire an attorney."
