A man ran into a Northeast Philadelphia Wawa after being shot near the convenience store and gas station early Monday.

The shooting took place during an apparent robbery attempt or argument outside the Wawa along Oxford Avenue, near Borbeck Avenue, in the Fox Chase neighborhood before 3 a.m., Philadelphia police said.

The 21-year-old man was shot in the wrist and listed in stable condition at a nearby hospital, police said.

Police officers could be seen investigating inside the Wawa, outside the store and across the street, where they seemed to focus on a parked vehicle.

It wasn't exactly clear where the shooting took place or the circumstances surrounding the shooting. Police would look at surveillance video as part of their investigation.

Wawa has yet to reply to NBC10's request for comment. The store appeared to be reopened by the Monday morning rush.
