Two men were shot to death on Philadelphia streets early yesterday, boosting the city homicide total this year to 108 — a rate of more than one killing a day.
Both were shot in the head and pronounced dead on the street, police said.
Their deaths followed that of a man who died Friday night in West Philadelphia in a place most would presume to be out of the line of fire – in his house. In a second-floor bedroom, Charles W. Baldwin, 42, was struck in the head by a stray bullet from a shoot-out below at 58th and Pine Streets.
