Center City Philadelphia Street Shooting Leaves 3 Young Men Injured – NBC10 Philadelphia

Three young men were injured Sunday night in a shooting outside a house in downtown Philadelphia that neighbors say is being used as a temporary rental.

Philadelphia Police said they found evidence that bullets were fired from at least two separate guns during the shooting along South 13th Street between Pine Street and Lombard Street around 11 p.m.

Two 19-year-olds and one 20-year-old were hospitalized in stable condition following the shooting, which police were investigating in a potential shooting.

Neighbors said they heard rapid gunfire. Bullet holes were found in parked cars and at least one other house. At least 66 evidence markers were strewn across the street and sidewalk.

The property is rented out as an Airbnb style home, neighbors said, while noting that they had never seen any issues with the property before.

Police did not recover any firearms and did not announce any arrests on Monday morning.

NBC10 has reached out to Airbnb for comment, but has yet to receive a response.

This shooting came at the end of a violent weekend in Philadelphia that also included the shooting of a 16-year-old boy.

The city’s new budget allocates nearly $ 156 million for anti-violence measures, of which $ 22 million will go to the Grants Program for the Expansion of the Anti-Violence Community. The program is designed to provide funds to organizations working to reduce violence in the city.
