Man Struck by Stray Bullets While Driving with Daughter in Germantown: Police

A man is fighting for his life after he was struck by stray bullets while driving with his young daughter in Philadelphia Thursday.

The 25-year-old man was driving with his 4-year-old daughter on Germantown Avenue and Wister Street around 6 p.m. when at least one gunman opened fire.

The man was shot once in the left side of the head and once in the right shoulder. He was taken to the hospital where he is currently in critical condition. The man’s daughter was not hurt during the shooting and is currently staying with family members.

Police don’t believe the man was the gunman’s intended target. No arrests have been made. The shooting occurred around the same time a 10-year-old girl was shot in North Philadelphia. Police say the girl was also an innocent bystander who was struck by a stray bullet.
