A man in his 20s who sustained gunshot wounds during an argument on the corner of 24th and Shotwell streets was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries, according to three witnesses on the scene who asked that their names not be used for fear of retribution.

The incident occurred sometime after 5:30 p.m. and started after a group of men in their 20s had an argument with two other men who were standing across the street,  witnesses said.

The two men shot five times at the group and hit the victim in his 20s twice, according to the witnesses.

Police collected shell casings in front of the Western Union at 993 Shotwell St, according to a police scanner twitter service.

The group of men who were with the victim as well as the suspects fled the scene. The victim, only described as a man in his 20s wearing a white shirt, ran southbound on Shotwell street before collapsing halfway down the block.

He was still conscious and moaning when he was carried away by the ambulance, a witness said.
