    Police say a man died in a shooting on the 3500 block of North 11th Street Tuesday morning.

    In what's shaping up to be a violent 24-hour stretch in Philadelphia, a man died in a shooting on a city street late Tuesday morning.

    The shooting came a little more than 12 hours after a triple shooting in Northeast Philadelphia's Mayfair neighborhood left one teen dead and another teen, as well as a 21-year-old man both in critical condition.

    Police said in the latest shooting, an unidentified man in his 20s was found about 11:45 a.m. lying on 11th Street near Venango, in North Philadelphia, suffering from gunshot wounds to his head and neck. Officers took the man to Temple University Hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead at 12:09 p.m.

    The shooting came hours after police say a 20-year-old woman stabbed her boyfriend's 26-year-old brother to death during an argument in a Southwest Philadelphia home and brought the city's homicide count to three in less than 24 hours.

    Police did not say what motivated the shooting, nor did they name any suspects.
