PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Two people were killed and two more were shot in what Philadelphia Police are calling a massive shoot-out in Point Breeze on Thursday night.

Families, including young children, were outside on the summer night when gunfire erupted on the block around 8:45 p.m. on South Bucknell and Oakford streets.

Home surveillance video captured the scene as the sounds of gunfire could be heard and residents took cover behind parked vehicles.
