The authorities have said that an 18-year-old unidentified man was killed. In addition, a 22-year-old unidentified man has also passed away.

The 18-year-old was shot in the torso, while the 22-year-old was shot in the lower back, police said. Both lost their life.

The two survivors at this time are two 19-year-olds. One is in critical condition, while the other is in stable condition, the police said.

The first 19-year-old was shot in the torso. The second 19-year-old was shot in the leg.

“It was a lot of shots,” Juana Roberts told NBC 10. “They told me it was like fifty shots. Fifty shots! Why so many shots? That’s horrible. You’re not safe nowhere. See if you walk into the home in the middle of the situation. I’m ready to retire. I don’t think I’m gonna wait four years more.”

The authorities found 55 shell casings at the scene. Many of them were on the basketball court.

The report says that a gun was found with a person in a nearby car. However, at this time, this individual, who has not been identified, has not been linked to the crime.

The authorities are trying to see if the individual took part in the crime. If you have any information into this crime, contact the Philadelphia Police Department.
