At the Gun Crisis Reporting Project, we followed 85 incidents which left 100 shooting victims during August, 2014 in Philadelphia, based on original reporting, media reports, police officials and other sources. Twenty people were pronounced dead on the same day they were shot, twice as many as we reported one month earlier.
