Source: KYW

It happened on South Street between 2nd and 3rd streets an area lined with restaurants, shops and bars shortly before midnight. Police said officers heard multiple gunshots, then saw several gunmen firing into a crowd of people.

An officer fired his gun at one of the shooters, Philadelphia Police Inspector D. F. Pace said. It is not known if the suspect was struck, however they did drop their gun and flee.

The officer was "within 10 to 15 yards of the shooter, watching this person shoot into the crowd" when he decided to engage, Pace said.

At least 14 people were struck by the barrage of gunfire, police said. Three of them, two men and a woman, were shot multiple times and died at the hospital.

2. Same thing happened on Carson St in Pgh's SouthSide Friday night

Also a popular weekend venue with plenty of bars, entertainment and crowds. People get drunk or there's a beef or worse a drunken beef and out come the guns. Police are also on patrol and alert there every weekend. The violence seems to be a function of the number of people in a relatively small area.

4. "Several gunmen" sounds like a concerted attack...

... not just some disgruntled psychopath.

13. I agree. Like a terrorist attack. It's time to call gang violence a terrorist act.

6. This is the country that the NRA has forced us to live in

Everywhere you go, every stranger you talk to, or see on the street could be carrying a gun. There's no way to know what will get them angry and make them decide to start shooting. But this will continue happening because we're all living in NRA-Land now.

9. I wish I could be optimistic but I thought Sandy Hook would do it. How silly of me!

I would hope Joe Biden could take it on. Now I don't know if he can. He does mean well and I am sure he would put all of his strength behind any effort to stop the gun lobby in Washington. That just is not happening.

11. I thought so too...that is about Sandy Hook. The gun lobby is hard to stop,..like an AR-15,

and they are very proud that they cannot be stopped.
