At Least 5 People Shot In Philadelphia; Scene Is on Same Street as Wednesday’s Police Shootout


Philadelphia police say at least five people were shot in the city’s Ogontz neighborhood Thursday.

Cops were called to the scene in the 5800 block of North 15th Street around 5:00 p.m. local time — about two miles from Wednesday’s shootout in which several officers were shot. 

According to local media, all injuries are believed to be non life-threatening.

It was unclear what led up to the shooting or if any suspects were in custody.

The violence comes a day after a gunman shot six police officers in an hours-long standoff before surrendering.
