PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia police say they’re searching for two different killers after two men were shot in separate incidents.

Police say a 24-year-old man was shot twice in the head in the Strawberry Mansion section of the city about 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Two hours later, a 50-year-old man was shot in the head and torso at the intersection of 38th and Reno streets in the Mantua section.

Police say the 24-year-old victim was able to run about a half block or more before collapsing. Detectives are hoping surveillance video may provide clues.

Neither victims’ name has been released.
