Three dead and 11 injured after mass shooting in Philadelphia

Three people were killed and 11 injured in Philadelphia late Saturday night after a gunman opened fire into a crowd on South Street.

Just before midnight, police officers said they heard multiple gunshots in the area between 2nd and 3rd streets and then saw what they believe were “several gunmen” firing into a crowd of people.

One officer responding to the scene reportedly fired one shot in the direction of one of the suspected shooters, Philadelphia Police Inspector D. F. Pace said to NBC Philadelphia.

The suspect reportedly dropped their firearm and fled the scene, authorities said.

Fourteen people were caught in the crossfire of the bullets, officers said, with two men and one woman receiving fatal wounds which they later died from while being treated at a nearby hospital.
