DELAWARE COUNTY, Pa. (YC) – Saturday was a busy night for police in Delaware County causing Crozer-Chester Medical Center to divert patients.
Chester Police responded after shots rung out just after 11:40 p.m. at the intersection Tilghman St & W 10th St.
Police noticed a man lying in the street shot to the neck. He was immediately rushed to Crozer-Chester in critical condition.
The victim was identified as 20-year-old Naim Abdullah.
Two other individuals made their way to Crozer-Chester’s emergency room, both with gunshot wounds to the arm.
These two victims were later identified as Dion Cobb & Jamil Richardson, both 18-years-old.
Just before midnight the hospital advised police and paramedics to divert any other patients to nearby hospitals as they were unable to accommodate more victims.
A few minutes prior to this shooting, Chester’s crime scene investigator was at the scene of a Septa bus shooting just a few miles away in Brookhaven.
