20 Shot 3 Stabbed 2 Dead Over Weekend in Philadelphia
Four people are dead and 16 others are injured after a series of shootings in Philadelphia this weekend.
Police were called to the city’s Olney section after five men were shot on the 100 block of East Albanus Street just before 4:30 p.m. The shooting left a 17-year-old and 23-year-old dead. A 21-year-old and two 22-year-olds are listed in stable condition after being injured in the shooting.
Around the same time as the quintuple shooting, police say a 34-year-old man was shot multiple times on the 2200 block of Cecil B. Moore Avenue around 4:30 p.m. There is no immediate word on his condition.
3 shot inside car
Around 1:30 p.m. Sunday, police say a gunman opened fire on three victims inside a light blue Nissan on the 2800 block of North 21st Street.
Police say one teenager was shot in the head. The male victim was rushed to an area hospital where he later died.
The shooting also injured a 19-year-old man who suffered eight gunshot wounds to the torso, said police. He was transported to Temple University Hospital where he is listed in extremely critical condition.
A third victim, an 18-year-old man, was shot in the left arm. He was transported to an area hospital where he’s listed in stable condition.
One person is dead and two others are injured after a gunman opened fire into a vehicle on Sunday afternoon in North Philadelphia.
Philadelphia is already on pace to surpass last year’s 499 murders. To date, 177 homicides have been recorded. That’s up 32% from this time last year.
“I’m devastated by the unspeakable violence that occurred this weekend across our city. My thoughts are with the victims and their families during this tragic time, and I want all Philadelphians to know that our Administration does not take this issue lightly. No priority is greater for us than reducing violence and creating a safer and more just city for us all,” said Mayor Jim Kenney in a statement.
Around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, a shooting injured a man and woman near 54th Street and Woodland Avenue. Both victims are listed in stable condition at an area hospital.
Police say a man was shot around 1:04 p.m. on the 2600 block of Felton Street. He is expected to survive his injuries.
Less than 10 minutes later, a 28-year-old man was shot two times on the 600 block of E. Wishart Street. He was rushed to an area hospital where he’s currently listed in critical condition.
3 people stabbed
Three people were also stabbed in separate incidents during the violence this weekend. Two of the three victims are listed in critical condition.

“I’m devastated by the unspeakable violence that occurred this weekend across our city.

No priority is greater for us than reducing violence and creating a safer and more just city for us all.
We are committed to investing as much money as possible back into our communities to prevent gun violence. It’s a key part of the $18.7 million in additional funding for anti-violence initiatives we proposed for next fiscal year. Over five years, we’re planning to increase our investment in proven violence reduction strategies by $70 million.
$1.3 million in new money for the expansion of the Group Violence Intervention strategy and the Community Crisis Intervention Program, which would make for a total investment of $6.6 million in FY22 for these two efforts.
The Targeted Community Investment Grant (TCIG) program will receive $500,000 in additional funding – nearly double the FY21 allotment. To date, the TCIG program has already provided more than $2 million in funding in grassroots violence reduction programs, with about $400,000 awarded just weeks ago, to support 30 programs.
These and other evidence-based strategies are available in the updated Roadmap for Safer Communities Plan we released last month, and on this post on phila.gov — 10 Things the City is Doing Right Now to Combat Gun Violence.”
