9 People Injured In Feltonville Shooting

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia police are offering a $5,000 reward for information about the gunmen who opened fire at a North Philadelphia night club, sending nine people to the hospital.

Police say the shooting happened outside the Felton Supper Club in the 4800 block of Rising Sun Avenue just before 3 a.m. Sunday

“Right now, all we have is that there are two black males, approximately 18 to 20 years old, fleeing the scene at this location,” said Deputy Commissioner Richard Ross.

East Division detectives say some kind of argument sparked the shooting.

All of the victims were between the ages of 19 and 35 years of age, according to police. Four victims were taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center. Another five were sent to Temple University Hospital. As of now, police say eight of the victims are in stable condition.

According to authorities, the building lacks security, putting anyone in the area in danger.

In a press conference Sunday afternoon, Mayor Nutter said he wants to shut the venue down.

“This could have been a mass murder out here, given the amount of rounds of fire, the number of people hit,” said Mayor Nutter.

Police searched the neighborhood for clues and recovered two handguns which had been ditched along Hope Street. The investigation is ongoing.

If you have any information about this case, you are asked to contact police at 215-686-8477.

    This place should have been shut down a LONG time ago. This isn’t the first time a shooting has taken place there… at least THIS time no one was killed. THe place looks like it’s crumbling down, there are ALWAYS fights there and what about the drugs & underage drinking? The city shouldn’t wait until things get worse before they try & make things better…. what about the people that have to live in the chaos every weekend?
