In January, 84 people were shot during 74 incidents reported across Philadelphia — including eight double shootings and one incident in which three men were shot — based on our original reporting, media reports, police officials and other sources.
Twenty-two victims were pronounced dead on the same day they were shot and 16 more people were initially reported in critical condition. Four women were killed and six more were wounded, three of them critically. Five boys under the age of 18 were shot, as was one 13-year-old girl.
