Mapped: 89 shooting victims reported in Philadelphia during November

At the Gun Crisis Reporting Project, we tracked 76 shooting incidents reported with 89 victims wounded or killed across Philadelphia throughout the month of November, 2013, based on our original reporting, media reports, police officials and other sources.

novmapAt least nine people were pronounced dead on the same day they were shot and 23 more were initially reported in critical condition.

Thirteen teens were wounded, including a 16-year-old girl, and three women were among the adult victims.

The youngest victim was a 15-year-old boy, wounded in Brewerytown, and the oldest was a 63-year-old man who was shot to death in Germantown.

Four separate days passed without a single shooting victim reported, but at least seven people were shot on four other dates. Four men were wounded in one West Philadelphia incident, and there were ten other shootings incidents with two victims each.

Three police-involved shootings were reported throughout the month. Our report excludes suicides.
