Philadelphia Shooting Victims Revealed
The victims of the recent Philadelphia shooting are now known. Police report that three people were killed and 11 others were injured. One shooter was killed by a police officer who fired at him, leaving the gun and the magazine extended behind. The police are now searching for surveillance video and a suspect in the shooting. Police are also investigating if a surveillance camera captured the shooting. In the meantime, there is a public outcry, and police are offering up a reward for information leading to the arrest of the shooters.
Three people were killed
Hundreds of people gathered on South Street in Philadelphia before midnight Saturday when a mass shooting broke out. Multiple shooters opened fire into a crowd, which resulted in the death of three people. One of the officers shot at the suspect in the area, getting him to drop his weapon and run. Police were able to apprehend two other suspects and the gunman. As the incident unfolded, the officers heard multiple gunshots and saw two suspects fire into the crowd. One of the shooters was shot by an officer, who managed to stop him by firing a single shot into the crowd. The officer, who was about 10 to 15 yards away, was able to stop the gunman from shooting more people.
Authorities have not released the names of the victims, but said one of the victims was a 25-year-old man and the other was a 22-year-old woman. Police are still searching for the shooters and are placing the neighborhood under lockdown. A police officer recovered two guns, one of which had an extended magazine. They also recovered “numerous” shell casings from the scene.
The shooting occurred on a Sunday afternoon, while the city was celebrating the Fourth of July. The shooting took place just steps from President Biden’s inauguration, which was marked by national outrage. Meanwhile, a similar shooting occurred in the area earlier this week. The police officer who fired the shot was watching the suspect fire into the crowd when he saw him. After the shooting, the suspect dropped his gun and fled. The shooting killed three people, and two other people were injured.
At least 11 others were injured

Many Republicans have long opposed any attempt to tighten gun laws.
An officer shot at one of the shooters
Police say they fired at one of the shooters when they arrived on the scene. The gunman dropped the weapon and fled, but not before an officer fired at him from 10 to 15 yards away.

The shooting killed two men and a woman, but it was unclear if the gunman was the shooter. Police recovered two handguns, one with an extended magazine, but no arrests have been made. The shootings in Philadelphia are part of a trend of gun violence that has swept the country. The Buffalo, New York, shooting killed 10 Black people in a racially motivated attack, while the Uvalde, Texas shooting left 19 children and teachers dead at Robb Elementary School. In suburban El Paso, Oklahoma, a shooting occurred, leaving four dead and many injured.
Police are looking for surveillance video
Investigators are searching for video surveillance footage of the deadly shooting, and they are expecting to find it at businesses near the scene. According to one bar owner, the video will help them identify the shooter. “An entire street was completely chaotic,” Eric Walsh told reporters outside his establishment. “The woman was lying face down in a pool of blood, bleeding profusely.”
At least three of the shooters are dead. The police officer who responded to the scene was able to shoot the suspect at close range, but he did not get a clear view of the shooting. He was within 10 to 15 yards of the shooter and then fired at him. The suspect dropped his gun, which was equipped with an extended magazine. After the officer shot the suspect, he was able to shoot him once more, killing three of the victims.
Investigators are appealing for the public’s help in identifying the shooter. Anyone with information is asked to call Philadelphia Police Department at 215-686-TIPS (8477) or text PPD TIP to 773847. Anyone who may have seen the suspect should stay away from the scene and call 911.

The shooters opened fire in a crowded area near the intersection of Third and South Street. Several police officers heard multiple gunshots and ran toward the scene. One of the officers fired at the suspect who then dropped his weapon and fled. It is unclear whether this shooter acted alone or in collaboration with other shooters.
Lawmakers in Harrisburg must take action to end gun violence in Philadelphia
Three plaintiffs from the Northeast section of Philadelphia and the Strawberry Mansion neighborhood joined lawmakers for a news conference to call on state legislators to act. Cheryl Pedro, Division Chief of Emergency Medicine at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and Stanley Crawford of Southwest Philadelphia each shared their personal stories of gun violence and its effects on their neighborhoods. “As a family, we are devastated. We live in constant fear,” said Dr. Thomas Farley, the city’s health commissioner.
Wolf and other legislators have called on lawmakers in Harrisburg to pass gun violence-curbing legislation. In June, he signed an executive order creating a special council and two new agencies focused on gun violence prevention. The two agencies are housed within the state’s Department of Health and the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. While the state legislature is in summer recess, Wolf visited Philadelphia following the police shooting.
The state must find a middle ground between the Second Amendment and the right to live free of fear. Governor Tom Wolf made the same call on Twitter two days after the shootings. While the House and Senate will not take action on guns, they must work together to create a gun-free environment for Philadelphia residents. The House should pass a gun-free zone law, requiring the sale of firearms to be recorded.
Two Democratic state lawmakers in Harrisburg are reintroducing legislation to clamp down on the sale of “ghost guns.” These undetectable 3-D printed firearms are also known as “80 percent receivers.” While purchasing and selling these pieces of hardware is legal, the assembly of them into a fully functioning firearm is illegal if the person has no gun ownership. The new legislation would allow police to temporarily restrict the sale of firearms to people who have no criminal history.
