Man Shot Near ‘Creed' Filming Location

Gunfire rang out late Wednesday in the shadow of where scenes for the new Rocky movie were recently filmed.

The shooting under a train bridge at South 25th and Federal streets around 11 p.m. left a 29-year-old man hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his shoulder.

After being shot, the victim ran several blocks west, Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

In recent days, crews for Sylvester Stallone’s "Creed 2" shot scenes a short distance from where the filming happened and a house a couple of doors down has been used during filming, neighbors told investigators.

No word yet on a motive or possible suspects in the shooting.

A shooter opened fire on a man inside the Magic Wok restaurant on Torresdale Avenue in the Tacony section of Philadelphia late Wednesday night.

This was part of a violent night in Philadelphia: A 31-year-old man was gunned down at a Tacony eatery. And, an argument between a father and son and two other men in Southwest Philadelphia left two men dead.
