Police Say 3 People Killed and At Least 11 Injured in Philadelphia Shooting: NPR

PHILADELPHIA — Three people died and at least 11 others were injured in a shooting Saturday night in Philadelphia, authorities said.

The Philadelphia Police Department responded to reports of a person with a gun in a large crowd.

Police Inspector DF Pace told a news conference that shots were fired into the downtown crowd and an officer shot a suspect. It is not known if the suspect was hit.

“You can imagine there were hundreds of people taking advantage of South Street, as they do every weekend, when this shooting broke out,” Pace said.

The condition of those injured by bullets remains unknown.

Authorities say no arrests were made but two weapons were recovered.

The Department said on Twitter to avoid the area and several people were injured.
