NORTH PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police are looking for the gunmen who they say opened fire on a group of people, injuring five of them, including a young child.

It happened around 11 p.m. Saturday on the 2000 block of 20th Street near Susquehanna Avenue in North Philadelphia. Police say a crowd was gathered outside when at least four men wearing hoodies opened fire.

"They fired into a crowd of people. There are about a total of 41 cartridge casings on the highway. So they deliberately fired into group," Philadelphia Police Captain Frank Palumbo said.
