Another day, another mass shooting … that is what our nation has become. This time the horror played out in Philadelphia … 3 people dead and at least 13 injured Saturday night after gunmen opened fire on a crowded street. It happened just before midnight … Police Inspector D.F. Pace said there were “several active shooters shooting into the crowd.”
One of the cops got close to one of the shooters and fired at him … it’s unclear if the shooter was hit, and he apparently dropped the gun and fled the scene. The shooters chose an area that is at the heart of the entertainment section of Philly … and an area with lots of bars and restaurants. Hundreds of folks were doing what they routinely do on the weekend … eat, party and enjoy the company of fellow Philadelphians when shots rang out.
Pace said 2 handguns were recovered, including one that had an extended magazine. So far, no arrests. Philadelphia police are reviewing a video that appears to capture the moments leading up to a deadly mass shooting on South Street Saturday night. The shooting happened around 11:30 p.m. and left three people dead and 11 others injured. Police sources say two of those killed were innocent bystanders. The third victim, according to sources, is the man seen on video wearing a white shirt. The video appears to show him pulling a gun out of his waistband.
