PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) – Police are investigating a double shooting that killed two men in West Philadelphia.

The shooting took place shortly after 4 pm in the 1200th quarter of 58th Street.

Police say a 20-year-old man was shot once in the chest.

The second victim, an 18-year-old man, was shot 16 times in the body.

Both victims were taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, where they died from their injuries.

The 20-year-old victim is reportedly wanted for the shootings on 52nd Street and Parish last year.

Police believe the incident was drug-related, and are looking for four gunmen who used a car stolen last December.

Officials say 35 shell casings were found at the scene.

It is reported that the incident was also filmed on video.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the police at 215-686-TIPS.
