Police Urge Witnesses to Come Forward After a Philadelphia Shooting

A night of revelry on Philadelphia’s South Street turned chaotic Saturday as gunmen opened fire into a crowd, leaving three people dead and 11 wounded in one of at least 10 weekend mass shootings across the United States.

Hundreds were “just enjoying South Street, as they do every single weekend, when this shooting broke out,” Philadelphia Police Inspector D.F. Pace said. Now, a search for the shooters is underway, and police are urging witnesses to come forward, offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

The carnage came as gun violence also marred the weekend in Chattanooga, Tennessee — where a shooting and its aftermath left three dead and 14 injured — and in attacks in Summerton, South Carolina, and Phoenix that each left one dead and at least seven wounded. Those incidents followed other mass shootings that have stunned the nation, including at a supermarket in New York; an elementary school in Texas; and a hospital in Oklahoma.
