Gunshot victim carjacks elderly man

By Shannon McDonald

A man with a gunshot wound to the stomach carjacked an 80-year-old man in Frankford yesterday.

Around 3 p.m., a man in his early 20s was shot in the stomach at Frankford and Granite. He then pulled the elderly man out of his car at Pratt and Darrah and drove down the street before crashing into another vehicle.

The gunshot victim was taken to Frankford-Torresdale Hospital, and the elderly man was treated at Temple Hospital.
