PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Authorities say a man who had been evicted from a Philadelphia homeless shelter returned and fatally shot one employee and wounded another.

Police say they're looking for the man who opened fire about 6 a.m. Sunday inside the Station House shelter in north Philadelphia.

Officials say the man was evicted Friday night after breaking the rules by being intoxicated. Authorities said he returned Sunday morning to get his belongings, but apparently got into an argument with an employee and pulled out a gun.

A man in his 40s was pronounced dead at the scene and a 26-year-old man shot in the hip was taken to a hospital.

Authorities say the gunman was last seen fleeing behind railroad tracks in the rear of the building.
