    One man is dead, another critical in a shooting inside a Feltonville home.

    A manhunt is underway for the person police believe shot and killed one man and critically wounded another late Wednesday night.

    The double shooting happened just before midnight on the 5000 block of F Street in the city's Feltonville section.

    A 28-year-old man was shot once in the eye and died and a 27-year-old man was shot in the elbow, side and back. He is at Temple Hospital in critical condition.

    Both men were shot in a second floor bedroom of the F Street home.

    Police found drugs at the scene and believe that could be the motive for the shooting.

    "We believe that this double shooting-homicide is possibly drug-related due to the fact that we found a large amount of what appears to be heroin, packaged on a table," said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small.

    Officials tell NBC10 that the man that was injured in the shooting was able to talk to police and identify the shooter.

    Those who knew the victims, say that the alleged shooter is well-known by family and friends.
