76ers-Bulls dispute prompted El train shooting

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police say a dispute over a basketball game led to a shooting that wounded two men on board an elevated train in Philadelphia.

Lt. John Walker says the shooting late Wednesday on the Market-Frankford El happened after a dispute over the 76ers’ loss to the Chicago Bulls earlier in the night.

Walker says a 35-year-old Bulls fan quarreled with two younger males before being shot as his assailants exited the train at 46th street in West Philadelphia. A second man who and tried to calm things down was shot in the leg.

Both men were taken to a hospital for treatment of their wounds and are expected to survive.

Police say there were more than two dozen people on the train at the time.
