Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

A Chicago Bulls fan was shot on a train in Philadelphia on Wednesday night following a Bulls victory over the 76ers.

Following a dispute on a Philadelphia train, a Chicago Bulls fan was shot on Wednesday night after the Bulls victory over the 76ers. The 35-year-old man was arguing with two younger males who shot the Bulls fan as they exited the train in West Philadelphia. Another man who intervened in the argument in an attempt to calm things down was also shot in the leg.

Philadelphia police say that over two dozen passengers were aboard the train at the time of the shooting. The suspects exited the train at the 46th street station in West Philadelphia. Both victims were taken to a local hospital and are expected to survive.

Police say the dispute was about the Bulls 96-89 win over the 76ers earlier that night in Philadelphia. This was the second meeting this season between the Bulls and Sixers. Chicago also defeated Philadelphia on Saturday, Dec. 1 in Chicago by a score of 93-88.
