1 dead after Manayunk recording studio fight; at least 30 shot since Friday night

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- It was another weekend of widespread gun violence in Philadelphia. Three people have died and at least 25 others were injured by gunfire since Friday night.

And one of the city's latest murders happened early Sunday morning in Manayunk -- a normally peaceful neighborhood.

Investigators say a fight inside Heat Recording Studios on Leverington Avenue spilled onto the street around 12:30 a.m. Sunday. That is when several shots were fired, hitting a 23-year-old man.

He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

6 people shot



An hour earlier, police say two groups of men began firing at one another around 11:30 p.m. near the intersection of North 9th and West Butler streets in North Philadelphia.

When it was over, six men were shot.

Police say a 28-year-old man, a 31-year-old man, a 41-year-old man and a 34-year-old man are all listed in stable condition.

Two other victims, a 22-year-old man and a 23-year-old man, are both listed in critical condition at at Temple University Hospital.

Two guns were recovered by investigators, who are still working to determine a motive.

Shooting outside bar
