Man shot outside Target store, hospitalized; shooter escapes

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police say someone has shot a man outside a Target store in Philadelphia and has escaped.

Police initially said they had arrested one gunman and a SWAT team was evacuating the store in search of a second gunman. They now say no one has been arrested.

They say a few men were fighting Friday afternoon when someone opened fire, hitting a 29-year-old man one time. The man has been hospitalized in stable condition.

A witness tells local television station WPVI that Target employees instructed customers to move to the back of the store after the gunshots rang out. She says she saw the man who was shot fall to his knees near the Target's entrance.

The press office for the Minneapolis-based Target Corp. hasn't responded to a voicemail message and an email seeking comment.
