Twenty minutes later, a 15-year-old boy who'd been shot in the same neighborhood arrived at a nearby hospital with bullet wounds to his shoulder and torso, police said. He told police the shooting happened in the 1800 block of East 29th Street, and he had run three blocks down the street to the before being taken to the hospital.

He was listed in stable condition.

Police are investigating whether the two shootings are related, a department spokeswoman said.

Nearly three miles away, just before midnight, a 27-year-old man was shot multiple times in the 4800 block of Bowland Avenue in Frankford. He also managed to go without an ambulance to a hospital, where police were called to interview him.

His condition was not known.

Eight people have been killed in the Northeast District this year; one — Nolan Coley Jr. — was shot to death on Hillen Road in Coldstream-Homestead-Montebello in February.

Police did not release any information on a possible suspect or motive in any of the three shootings. Anyone with information may call detectives at 410-396-2221 or the anonymous Metro Crime Stoppers tip line at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
