Mass shooting has become a common business in the United States. After the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School, in which at least 19 students and 2 teachers were killed, another mass shooting took place in Philadelphia. According to authorities, three people were killed and 14 others were injured in Philadelphia (at the time of writing) on Saturday night (June 4th).
According to reports, the unidentified assailants entered a series of shootings at the intersection of 3rd and South Streets, where a large crowd had gathered. It appears that several suspects opened fire on the crowd using automatic weapons, which are readily available in US stores.
Two weapons were later recovered from the crime scene. One of the weapons was fired by a gunman and equipped with an “extended warehouse”. Speaking on the issue, police inspector DF Pace noted: “You can imagine that hundreds of people were just enjoying South Street, as they do every weekend when this shootout broke out.”

“Patrol officers heard numerous gunshots and rushed into the area, where they saw several active gunmen firing into the crowd,” the police officer said. A 23-year-old man named Joe Smith, who was 3 meters from the crime scene, said:
“Once it started, I didn’t think it would stop. There were guttural screams. I just heard screams. “ The eyewitness recalled the recent mass shootings that took place in Uvalde and Buffalo.
The suspects have not yet been identified
No arrests have been made so far, and police are looking for surveillance footage to try to identify the shooters. However, a police officer shot a suspect three times, but it is not known if he was hit or not. According to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital spokesman, 7 people were injured at the hospital.

The official revealed that 4 victims were in a stable condition, while one victim was declared dead on arrival. Another 5 were hospitalized at Pennsylvania Hospital, while three others were taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. The number of injured has risen to 14 now.
Among those killed were a 22-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman. It is said that the woman was pregnant with a child. Fortunately, the doctors managed to save the unborn child of the deceased woman.
South Street is a popular destination where thousands of people gather every day. The crowd was much bigger because of the weekend. Therefore, it has become a perfect destination for these unknown monsters to open fire.
The United States had more mass shootings than any other country. In general, shooters either die by suicide afterwards or are detained or killed by law enforcement or civilians. In this case, they are on the run and we do not know how many more incidents will occur. Will this ever stop?
