The city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country in place. However, this has done nothing to lower the gun crime rate there.
The ineffectiveness of these liberal gun control laws was just proven once again this weekend…
Two men were killed and three others were injured during shootings in South Philadelphia.
Police were called to the report of a shooting around 11:55 p.m. Saturday at 22nd and Fitzwater streets.
A 28-year-old man was shot in the back and right wrist, police say. He was taken to Jefferson University Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
A 19-year-old man was shot in the right leg, a 26-year-old man was also shot in the leg, and a 24-year-old man was shot in the back.
All were taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center where they were treated and released.
Police say all four victims were at or near the intersection when gunshots were fired from one or two vehicles.
Police say they found 34 shell casings in the area from three weapons that were located at the scene.
Homicide detectives are trying to determine if security cameras from a nearby building recorded the crime.
Then shortly before 7:30 a.m., police were called to the Riverview Apartments on the 1000 block of South 4th Street for the report of a body.
The Action Cam on the scene showed the door had been ripped off the hinges and a shoe was resting in the doorway.
Police say a man was found face down in the parking lot. He had been shot at least once.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
No arrest have been made in either shooting incident.
