PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Authorities say a slew of shootings, including several homicides, have the holiday weekend off to a violent start in Philadelphia. Police say gunfire shortly before 7 a.m. Saturday in the Hunting Park neighborhood of north Philadelphia killed a 25-year-old man and a 31-year-old man and wounded two other men listed in stable condition.
“It’s what’s really happening. It’s real life,” Luciana Ramirez, who lives in the neighborhood, said. “This is normal for me because I live here and it’s becoming normal for the kids that are growing up here, but it’s fixable.”
A double shooting at about 10:45 p.m. Friday in Southwest Philadelphia killed one woman and critically wounded another.
Shortly after 1:30 a.m. Saturday in West Philadelphia, a 32-year-old man was found in a vehicle with gunshot wounds. He later died at a hospital.
A Northeast Philadelphia shooting critically injured a man, and victims were listed in stable condition after shootings in South and Southwest Philadelphia.
No arrests were reported in any of the shootings.
