Police recovered three guns from the scene. Two of them were found under a van and one was found in a recycling bin.
There are businesses in the area, and police are hoping they have surveillance video that captured the shooting.
“We know that a lot of shots were fired from several caliber weapons,” says Chief Inspector Scott Small. “We found 32 shell casings, and we don’t believe we’re done counting the shell casings, we believe we’re going to find more. Both of these victims that are alive are being held as suspects, just due to the fact that we found three weapons on the scene. There is a possibility that our victims, all three of these victims, may have been in possession of one of these weapons.”MORE NEWS: 2 Men Found Dead Outside Home In Tacony Neighborhood, Philadelphia Police Said
