PHILADELPHIA – Authorities say a father and son were shot and wounded when they interrupted a burglary at their Philadelphia home.

The shooting occurred around 9:45 p.m. Monday, when the two victims and other members of their family returned home from a shopping trip and found two men inside their residence.

The two men fired at least 10 times. The 33-year-old father was hit in his arms and torso and remained hospitalized in critical condition, while his 12-year-old son was grazed in the chest and was hospitalized in stable condition.

No other injuries were reported.

Authorities say the father has a gun permit and had a weapon in his possession, but it’s not clear if he fired any shots.

The suspects fled the scene and remain at large.
