Pa. shooting leaves man critically injured after carjacking: report – PennLive

A man is in critical condition after being shot and having his car stolen, according to a report from CBS News Philadelphia.
According to authorities, it all happened in west Philadelphia just before 11:30 p.m. Monday night on the 5400 block of Spring Street. Police said they received a report of gunshots and found a 23-year-old man in the street with multiple gunshot wounds upon arrival.
The victim was taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center and placed in critical condition, CBS News reported.
Police said the shooter fled the scene in the victim’s black Dodge Charger, which had red stripes on the side.
According to CBS News, the crime happened days after District Attorney Larry Krasner and other officials announced a new unit to prosecute carjackings.
“There is a specific violent component and a selfishness that comes with a carjacking,” assistant DA Helen Park said last week, according to the news outlet. “And it truly puts everybody’s sense of security and safety in danger, if not eradicating it completely.”
