Philadelphia Police Department:27 Shots Fired, 4 People Struck


A woman and three men were hospitalized after a shooting in Southwest Philadelphia Wednesday night. 




No arrests have been made. If you have any information on this incident, please call Southwest Detectives at 215-686-3183. 


Police say a group of people were hanging out on the 2600 block of Dagget Street around 9:20 p.m. Suddenly, police say, someone took out a gun and fired 27 shots. 


A 20-year-old man was struck in the head while another man in his early 20s was shot in the shoulder. Police also say a bullet entered the home of a 21-year-old woman on 65th and Buist.

The woman, who police say was an innocent bystander, was struck in the head as she stood in the front bedroom on the second floor of the house.

Police say the woman was getting ready to go to bed before she was shot.

Police say the 20-year-old man is in critical condition, the man in his early 20's stable, and the woman critical.

Police also say another man was found with a gunshot wound to his side lying on top of a gun a few blocks away on 61st and Elmwood.

He was listed in critical condition.

All of the victims were taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

"It's a nice community, I grew up in this community," said Lieutenant John Walker of the Philadelphia Police Department. "It's really a bunch of good people out here. For these idiots to be firing 27 shots on a beautiful night with people out and kids playing should not be tolerated." 


No arrests have been made. If you have any information on this incident, please call Southwest Detectives at 215-686-3183.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
