UPDATE: Man shot in his Frankford home

By Shannon McDonald

UPDATE: The man who was shot was 47, FOX reports, not 30. Police say they expect the man, who walked to the emergency room, to recover. They are also investigating whether the man was involved with a group of people who were smoking crack cocain when the bullets came through the first-floor window of the home. The man is still in Frankford-Torresdale Hospital.

Police say a man was in his home on the 1600-block of Dyre Street in Frankford when a bullet came through his screen window at 5:30 this morning.

The 30-year-old man was struck twice in the head, and sustained severe brain damage.

CBS3 states the man remains in Frankford-Torresdale Hospital, though Frankford Hospital would make more sense. No arrests have been made.
