PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Action News has obtained new video of a deadly double shooting in Philadelphia's Germantown section.

Cameras captured three gunmen jump out of a white SUV in the 5000 block of Germantown Avenue at about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The suspects immediately ambush two men in their 20s, firing multiple shots, the video shows. One of the victims was hit by a car.

Both victims were taken to Einstein Medical Center.

Police said 27-year-old Daquan Tucker and 29-year-old Nafee Hardy-Childs were killed.

Sources tell Action News at least 52 shots were fired. Police officers arrived less than 30 seconds after the burst of gunfire.

"It's very unfortunate, it's very sad," said Ihsan Dawud of Germantown.

Dawud says he heard the gunshots and ran to help the two men who he knew from the neighborhood.

"Myself and a few of the other officers of the city, we rushed over and literally carried the victim to the back of the police vehicle," said Dawud.

Dawud says he carried Hardy-Childs.

"I've seen him for many years actually, unfortunately, and it's very sad. We send our condolences to his friends and his family," said Dawud.

Dawud works close to where the fatal rounds were fired and says he's fed up with the gun violence in his community.

"It's more than surprising because you know being in the city of Philadelphia shouldn't be a war zone," said Dawud.

He especially feels the effects as a father and caregiver.

"I'm a director of a children's program, and things like this are always very stressful, always very sad. Not just for myself but also for our children," said Dawud.

No arrests have been made in connection with the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
