the shooter or shooters. we can't even find ballistic evidence at this point. hopefully the numerous cameras we found in the area recorded something that can help us with this triple shooting investigation. >> now, investigators know the 17-year-old and 18-year-old were out together around 1:30 this morning and the 44-year-old was also out on a bike. they say there is no connection really that they know of at this point between the two young men and that 44-year-old man. they say that the victims all told police they believe they heard shots coming from behind them, that they heard three shots fired and each victim was shot once. if you know anything about this case, you are asked to call philadelphia police. those victims all being tleeted hereç at temple hospital. deanna durante, nbc 10 news. bucks county, tyler state park will re-open to the public this morning. visitors are warned, crews will continue their search for a missing woman there. lindsay pacone was last seen sunday. her car was found inside the
