Police are searching for a man who allegedly shot three members of the Wheels of Soul Motorcycle Club in West Philadelphia early Sunday morning.

Investigators say it happened shortly before 5:50 a.m. outside the club on the 6100 block of Market Street. Police say the men had just parked a vehicle on the southeast corner of Dewey and Market Streets and were about to enter the club when one of the men noticed another man standing on a corner who was acting suspicious. One of the men asked him if everything was alright but the man did not respond, the victim told police.

As the men knocked on the door of the club to enter, the suspect began firing at the group, police say. The suspect left the scene and ran south on Dewey Street, according to police.

Investigators say a 31-year-old man was shot in the head and is in critical condition. A 34-year-old man and a 47-year-old man were both shot in the leg and are listed in stable condition.

The suspect is described as 6-foot-tall, 190 pounds, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a knit hat.

If you have any information on the shooting, contact Philadelphia Police.
