A shooting inside an Airbnb led to a chase and crash in South Philadelphia, police said. The chaotic series of events started when a gunman fired seven shots into the Airbnb on the 2000 block of Titan Street in Point Breeze just after 10:30 p.m. Monday. “Several bullets, at least four, went through the front door, and at least one went through the front window of the property. That’s where we believe the victim was inside this Airbnb when he was struck by gunfire,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

The victim was able to tell police where he was shot. He was taken to the hospital in stable condition.
