LOGAN (WPVI) —
Two people have been shot and wounded in an attempted robbery in the city’s Logan section.
The incident occurred just after 2 a.m. at the intersection of North 11th Steet and West Olney Avenue.
Police arrived to the scene to find a 37-year-old female and a 23-year-old man both shot in the back.
The victims tell police they were sitting outside on the steps when a man came up and attempted to rob the victims and opened fire.
The suspect fled towards north on 12th to Grange where he came across a man in his 30s on a BMX bike.
The suspect then stole the bike and rode away on it.
“Our shooter is described as a male, about six-feet tall, stocky build. He was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and light-colored, possibly gray, sweatpants. He was riding a BMX bike with possibly orange rims or tires,” said Chief Insp. Scott Small.
Both victims were taken to Einstein Medical Center, where they are listed in stable condition.
