An Uber passenger was hurt early Saturday morning after getting caught in the middle of crossfire in South Philly.

The passenger's Uber was reportedly headed south on Broad Street around 1 a.m., according to 6ABC, when gunfire was reported in the area of Broad and Webster streets, roughly a mile south of City Hall.

The Uber's back window was shattered by a bullet, police told 6ABC, and the passenger, a 28-year-old whose name has not been released, suffered a "graze wound" near the head.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital, and is reportedly in stable condition.

No arrests have been made, according to 6ABC.

Last March, an Uber passenger was hospitalized when a stray bullet in a drive-by shooting struck the passenger during a ride in Southwest Philadelphia.
