Man recovering after recent shooting; investigation into woman’s fall continues

A 25-year-old Philadelphia man continues to recover from a gunshot wound he suffered when he was shot allegedly by his girlfriend when he refused to leave her Hepburn Street apartment on July 17, city police said Monday afternoon.

The shooting occurred at 1035 Hepburn St. about 10:10 p.m., police said. The victim was rushed to UPMC Williamsport and initially admitted to the intensive care unit, police said. There was no information this week on whether he was still hospitalized.

The woman, believed to be in her mid-20s, was taken to police headquarters and questioned, and then later released. No charges have been filed as the investigation into the shooting continues, police said.

Concerning another assault, officers are still trying to piece together all the information in a case that sent a 21-year-old woman to the hospital with serious injuries, city police said.

The woman suffered head and facial injuries in an attack and then suffered a broken back as a result of a fall, police were told.

The assault occurred at the woman’s home in the 500 block of Arch Street just before 11 p.m. on July 18, police said. The woman spent at least two days in the hospital.

“We understand several people were kicked and punched. We’re still doing interviews,” a crime supervisor said.
