A store worker and a suspect were both fighting for their lives after they were both shot inside a Philadelphia corner store. 

Police said a 28-year-old man shot a 23-year-old worker inside a store on the 1500 block of Arrott Street in the Frankford neighborhood around 7:30 p.m. Sunday. The 28-year-old suspect was also shot once in the left arm and once in the left side.

Police have not revealed whether the 23-year-old man shot the suspect or if the suspect accidentally shot himself. 

Both men were taken to Temple University Hospital where they were both in critical condition. The 28-year-old man was being held as a prisoner while at the hospital, investigators said.

Just up the block, police secured a home at Arrott and Penn streets, but it was unclear if that scene was connected to the shooting.
