Triple shooting in downtown Philadelphia – NBC10 Philadelphia

Three people were shot in downtown Philadelphia on Sunday night, culminating a violent weekend in the city that left at least two people dead and several injured.

Philadelphia Police officers joined police from nearby Jefferson University Hospital in responding to a shooting in the area of ​​11th and Ludlow streets – very close to Market Street – just before 11:30 p.m. on June 2, 2024, Philadelphia Police Captain Anthony Ganard said.

Police found three gunshot victims at the scene, Ganard said. A 42-year-old woman was hit in the pelvis and arm, a 53-year-old woman was hit in the knee, and a 22-year-old man was shot twice in the arm.

The 42-year-old woman was in critical condition, while the other two victims were in stable condition in hospital.

Police determined that at least four shots were fired during what witnesses described as “some sort of argument or altercation,” Ganard said.

Police said they would use surveillance cameras to search for the person who pulled the trigger.

The shooting was the culmination of a violent weekend in Philadelphia that left at least two people dead and several injured.
