Philadelphia gun violence: 3 dead, more than 30 injured in another violent weekend

The City of Philadelphia has recorded at least 300 homicides for the year
PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- At least three dozen people have been shot in another violent weekend in the city of Philadelphia.

Since Friday evening, at least three people have died and 33 others were injured by gunfire.

In the latest shooting, which occurred around 11:15 p.m. Sunday near Market and Peach streets in West Philadelphia, three teenagers were injured.

Police on patrol heard gunshots and rushed to the scene.

Arriving officers found three shooting victims and then spotted a male running from scene.

Police went after the suspect, but there is no word yet on whether they caught him.

In all, investigators found at least 10 shell casings in that area.

The victims, ages 16, 17, and 18, are listed as stable at the hospital.

Detectives are still working to learn exactly what led to the shooting.

Just before 3 p.m. Sunday, three people were shot on the 5500 block of Malcolm Street.

Police say a 15-year-old male, a 29-year-old male and a 19-year-old male were all injured by gunfire. All three victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

One of the youngest victims of gun violence this weekend was a 1-year-old girl who was shot in the leg Saturday. It happened around 8 p.m. at the corner of 50th Street and Haverford Avenue.

Police are investigating a double shooting in West Philadelphia that wounded a 1-year-old child.



The child was transported by police to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and listed in stable condition. Officials say a 26-year-old man was also shot in the left forearm. The man is expected to survive.

And on Friday night, a quintuple shooting left one person dead and four others, including a 14-year-old, injured. It happened around 8:40 p.m. on the 2700 block of Ruby Terrace.

A 31-year-old man was shot multiple times in both legs. He was transported by police to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. The victim was later identified as Elgin Battle of the 2800 block of North 25th Street.

A 14-year-old female suffered a graze wound to the abdomen. She was transported to Penn Presbyterian and is currently listed in stable condition.

A 29-year-old man was shot two times in the chest and two times in the abdomen. He was transported to Penn Presbyterian in critical but stable condition.

A 38-year-old man was shot in the right leg. He was transported to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center in stable condition.

No arrests were made and no weapon recovered.

The surge in violence continues as Philadelphia tops 300 homicides for the year.

Anti-violence groups like the City of Dreams Coalition are laser-focused on curbing the rising violence. The group's main approach to the problem is something called the "block-by-block approach."

"We're out here knocking on doors, finding out what exact resources they need to break those barriers," said Taleah Taylor, president of the Coalition.

Taylor has said the battle against violence and helping bridge the gap between communities and police is something she's been working on her entire life.

6abc's Data Team was able to pinpoint the hardest-hit areas of the city: Ogontz, Logan, Strawberry Mansion and Fern Rock saw the most.

No arrests have been made in connection with these shootings. Anyone with any information is asked to call police at 215-686-TIPS.
