One person is dead and several are hurt after a violent night across Philadelphia.

Police are looking for the person who shot and killed a man in Germantown

Investigators say the victim, a 45-year-old man, was shot four times in the back at Germantown Avenue and Wister Street just after midnight. He died at the scene.

One person is in custody Thursday morning after a late-night shooting in Olney that left a teen in critical condition. It happened on North Second and West Champlost streets.

Police say at least 14 shots were fired from two different guns. Officers tell us a 16-year-old boy was hit once.

Police say when they got to the scene, they saw a car taking off from the scene. They pulled that man over, allegedly found two guns in the car, and took him into custody on weapons possession counts.

Another shooting happened in the Hunting Park section of the city.

Police say a man was shot in the arm and back on the 500 block of West Wyoming Avenue. He's in stable condition. Officers are looking for a suspect.

And, back in Olney, police made an arrest after a stabbing outside of a bar along Fifth Street. The victim was taken for treatment, but there was no word on his condition.

Officers have not yet said what set-off the situation or who they have in custody.
