Stabbing and triple shooting leaves one dead.

Early-morning violence at a North Philadelphia bar left one dead and sent three others to the hospital, police say.

Around 1:02 a.m. on Saturday, an argument spilled out onto the streets from a bar on the 2700 block of West Sergeant Street, resulting in a stabbing and triple shooting, according to police.

One 26-year-old victim was transported to Temple Hospital with two bullet wounds in his back and a third in his right armpit. He was pronounced dead at 1:26 a.m, police tell NBC Philadelphia.

Two other males also suffered gunshot wounds. The first, 43 years old, was shot in his left thigh. The second, 37 years old, suffered two gunshot wounds to his chest. Both were transported to Temple Hospital and were in critical condition as of 4:10 p.m. on Saturday.

The fourth victim, a 32-year-old, was taken to Einstein and is in stable condition after being stabbed in the right thigh.

So far, police have not made any arrests and say, “It’s still an ongoing investigation.”
