The shooting occurred on Sunday, April 27, at 1:25 p.m. on the 2900 block of North Marshall Street.

When police arrived, they found the wounded 46-year-old victim at the corner of Marshall and Indiana Avenue.

Police described the gunman as a dark-complected black male in his teens, wearing a dark blue hooded sweatshirt. The second rider was a light-complected Hispanic or black male wearing a light-colored shirt with stripes. Both were said to be riding BMX-type bike.

According to police, the victim was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he was immediately taken into surgery and listed in extremely critical condition.
