2 Killed, 4 Hospitalized in Shootings, Stabbing at Philly Community

Police are trying to determine if deadly incidents at the Wilson Park community are connected.

A domestic dispute in a South Philadelphia neighborhood ended with two people stabbed and three people shot, one fatally.

Authorities say the incident may have also spurred another shooting that killed a 24-year-old man at the Wilson Park housing community.

The domestic dispute occurred around 9:40 p.m. Monday. Authorities say a man was stabbed in his arm, and he then shot two women and a man. A 40-year-old woman was also stabbed.

One of the women who was shot, a 46-year-old, died, while the two other victims, a 51-year-old woman and 59-year-old man, were hospitalized with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

The second shooting, on Point Breeze Avenue, happened about 90 minutes later on a nearby street. Authorities say it may have been an act of retaliation.

Investigators continued to sort out the crime scenes overnight.
