The 32-year-old man was hit in the chest, bicep, and left wrist, according to NBC 10 Philadelphia. He was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was treated. He is in stable condition, according to police.

After the shooting, the men ran off and fled in a white Acura before driving off, police said. A motive for the crime has not been identified, police said.

“There was no robbery, there was no argument, they didn’t take anything, they didn’t ask for anything, these three males walked right up to this victim – while he was sitting in the passenger seat – and fired two shots from point-blank range,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

Philadelphia police believe that the shooting was recorded by real-time surveillance cameras in the area, and will use the video to try to identify the three men, according to Newsbreak. However, no descriptions of the suspects have been released yet, according to police.
