Downtown Philadelphia street shooting leaves 3 young men injured – NBC10 Philadelphia

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

Philadelphia police say they found evidence that bullets were fired from at least two separate firearms in the shooting along South 13th Street between Pine and Lombard streets around 10:45 p.m.

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

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

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

Police did not recover any firearms and announced no arrests Monday morning.

NBC10 has reached out to Airbnb for comment, but has yet to hear back.

This shooting occurred at the end of a violent weekend in Philadelphia that also included a shot 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 Anti-Violence Community Expansion Grant Program. The program is designed to provide funds to organizations working to reduce violence in the city.
