Following the Bulls' road win over the Sixers on Wednesday night, two Chicago fans were shot while riding the train in Philadelphia, according to the various reports.

Per the Chicago-Tribune, police said both Bulls fans were males in their thirties and had engaged in "a little bit of banter" with two other passengers on the train.

According to John Roberts of ESPNChicago.com, it's unclear whether the two victims attended the Bulls-Sixers game at the Wells Fargo Center.

Fox 32 in Chicago reports that one of the victims is in critical condition at a local hospital, while the other is stable.

"We have a young man who was celebrating a victory from a team he follows, and unfortunately we've got two young idiots who don't know how to control their anger and don't know how to respect themselves and respect society," Lt. John Walker told Fox 32.

UPDATE: The Philadelphia police department released a video, taken by surveillance cameras, of the argument that took place on the SEPTA El train which led to the shooting. Police are looking for the shooter.
