    A bullet grazed the face of a 19-year-old woman after a verbal altercation escalated to violence in Philadelphia Saturday night.

    The victim and a friend were outside along the 8000 block of Temple Road in the West Oak Lane section of the city when two men pulled up in a dark-colored SUV, according to police.

    She was rushed to Albert Einstein Medical Center, where she is in stable condition.
