The Philadelphia Police Department is asking the public for help in identifying two suspects who fled a train platform after one of the men fired a handgun into a crowded train car.

The shooting, which took place Wednesday, followed an argument about “a recent professional basketball game,” the police revealed.

“The bullet passed through the first victim['s stomach] and then struck the second victim in the leg.”

The Chicago Tribune reported Thursday that the two men who were shot were “[Chicago] Bulls fans bragging about the team’s 96-89 victory in Philadelphia Wednesday night.”

They were both in stable condition, according to the Tribune.
