Video Shows Gunmen Firing Into Crowd In Weekend Shooting In Feltonville
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Police have released surveillance video of the shooting early Sunday morning that left nine people wounded outside a Feltonville nightclub (see previous story).
“There’s the two individuals right there — right there,” says East Detectives captain John Gallagher as he narrates the surveillance video that shows two men walking into the intersection of Rising Sun Avenue and Louden Street and firing into a crowd of people just after closing time at the Felton Supper Club.
“These two individuals fired their guns indiscriminately, and after that what they did was they retreated back down Louden Street, eastbound back toward what we believe to be a waiting getaway car, which we have not identified yet,” says Gallagher (right).
Investigators say there was no trouble inside the club during the night. They believe the two gunman had targeted a specific person when they opened fire, but don’t know who that person was.
Gallagher says the owners of the club have been very cooperative.
Both suspects are said to be around 5’11” tall and in the 18-20 year old age range.
