Fight leads to shooting outside Germantown Ave. gas station

The victim, who was initially taken to Chestnut Hill Hospital, was shot twice in the buttocks and twice in the shoulder around 3:10 p.m.

The shooting stemmed from a fight in the street near a Sunoco gas station at that intersection, police said.
