Weekend murders: 3 men shot and killed, not in Philly

    Over the weekend there were three separate shooting incidents that left three people dead. And while that statement may (unfortunately) seem usual enough, these shootings happened outside the city.

    Early Friday morning a 35-year old man was shot and killed in Chester, leaving “pools of blood on the sidewalk,” reports Delcotimes.com.

    A second Chester shooting occurred late Saturday afternoon when a 23-year-old man was shot. He was taken to Crozer-Chester Medical Center and pronounced dead two hours later.

    Radio station WDEL 1150AM reports that a 4 a.m. shooting early this morning in Wilmington, Delaware has left an unidentified man dead with multiple gunshot wounds.

    Detectives are investigating.
