#GunCrisis: Philadelphia, regional and national updates


Police were called to the scene
after gunfire broke out during a disturbance early Sunday on Delaware Avenue in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia, according to reports from CBS3, 6ABC and NBC10.

Two men were listed in stable condition at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania after they wounded Saturday afternoon in a shooting on Theodore Street in Southwest Philadelphia. Philly.com has a brief report.

An off-duty police officer shot a man during a fight Saturday in Northeast Philadelphia, according to NBC10. A SEPTA bus was struck by a rock and not a bullet as originally reported Saturday night, according to an update from NBC10.

Local media have posted updates on the accidental shooting that killed a woman Friday in Montgomery County, Pa., the search for a shooting suspect in central Pennsylvania and the multiple-victim shooting in Trenton, NJ, which we first reported yesterday.

In national news this weekend, three people were shot to death at a bar in Ohio, six people were shot after a party in Chicago and a San Francisco Police officer was shot and wounded while investigating a vandalism report.

Police responded to a call for shots fired at a movie theater at a mall Saturday night in Maryland, according to a Facebook post from the Anne Arundel County Police Department, which determined that there was no gunfire but “further investigation revealed that someone set off possible fireworks inside of a juice bottle.”

The Gun Crisis Reporting Project is an award-winning, independent, nonprofit journalism community striving to illuminate the epidemic of homicide by gunfire in Philadelphia — and to find solutions.
