‘Several Active’ Gunmen Fire Into Crowd — 3 Killed, Dozens Injured in Philadelphia

At least three people were killed and 10 people more wounded in a mass shooting in Philadelphia late Saturday night, police said.

Gunfire erupted in the city’s bustling South Street neighborhood near 3rd Street shortly before midnight, Philadelphia police told WPVI.

Patrolling officers heard numerous gunshots go off and rushed to the area, where they saw “several active shooters” firing into the crowd, Inspector DF Pace told the station.

One responding officer shot at one of the gunman, police said. It’s unclear if he was hit.

At least one shooter dropped their gun, which was equipped with “an extended magazine,” The Philadelphia Inquirer reported. Cops found two guns at the scene, according to the newspaper.

Cops said two of the deceased include a 25-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man, the newspaper said.

Seven victims were taken to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, including one of the deceased victims.

Five others were taken to Pennsylvania Hospital, including the suspect, police told the newspaper.

Three other victims were taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center.

The conditions of the victims were not immediately available. No officers were injured, according to police.

Joe Smith, 23, was waiting outside of the Theatre of the Living Arts on South Street when shots were fired just 10 feet from the venue, he told the Inquirer.

”Once it started I didn’t think it was going to stop,” Smith said. “There was guttural screaming. I just heard screams.”

He told the paper he instantly thought of the recent mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas and Buffalo, New York once he heard gunshots.

No arrests have been made at this time. Police are looking for surveillance footage to try to identify the shooters.

“Several people have been injured. Please avoid the area,” the Philadelphia Police Department said just before 1 a.m. Sunday morning.

    These shootings – particularly ones perpetrated on children – will continue on into the elections of this year. The Democrats are extremely desperate and are pulling out all the stops – finding mentally unstable people along with professional and amateur gang bangers – to pull off their massacres using guns – the more powerful guns the better for them. This is only secondarily done to take guns away from every American – but to claim at every opportunity that Republicans and Conservatives are “the cause” of all these killings and therefore everyone needs to vote against them in the upcoming elections. YES — the Democrats are just that EVIL!! They have NO qualms whatsoever spilling blood to get whatever they want — and they will continue – as we are seeing now – until the ones who can’t be fooled by their madness – put a stop to them — forever. A good start is getting every last one of them out of office — NOW!

    These incidents will continue until the left have the citizenry BEGGING for the government to take away all guns. The gunmen in all these incidents are political pawns being paid by leftist groups. They know they won’t do a day in jail if caught because the left will make sure it’s a liberal jury and/or judge hearing the case. Soros money being used at it’s best.
