BROOKHAVEN, Pa. -

Police are investigating a deadly shooting Thursday night in Delaware County.

Around 10:15 p.m., the shooting occurred on the 1400 block of Rainer Road in Brookhaven.

So far, there are reported to be two victims, both between the ages of 18 and 20. One man was killed, the other was hospitalized with injuries that are not life-threatening.

The chief of police in the Township of Chester says investigators found a handgun on the injured man. That's the one who is hospitalized. He was shot in the torso.

The police chief also said Friday morning that detectives were still on Rainer Road looking for evidence like video surveillance even though it's a residential street.

Asked if they're confident no one else was involved in this shooting, and the chief said it's still under investigation.

FOX 29's Stephanie Esposito has more details in this live video report from outside the Chester Township Police Department.
