A man shot two of his neighbors to death in the Frankford section of Lower Northeast Philadelphia and four people were wounded in a gun battle in southwest Center City as gunfire erupted throughout the city Sunday morning.

The Frankford double homicide was the fifth incident of the early hours and a 69-year-old resident of the 4700 block of James Street was being questioned by detectives for the fatal shooting of a man and a woman. None of those involved were immediately identified.

"The story is still being sorted out," one police official at the scene in the 4700 block said. The shooter was seen in the back of a police cruiser.

Overall, the carnage across Philadelphia left 10 people injured or killed, including the two on James Street and a man near 22nd and Fitzwater streets.

In addition to the dead man, three others were wounded in what police initially believe to be a running gun battle in the Graduate Hospital section of Center City.

The gunfire began shortly after midnight and responding officers found the four injured men stretched over two blocks of Fitzwater Street from 20th to 22nd streets.

All of the men were in their 20s, including the dead man who was 28.

The second shooting of the night happened about 1:30 a.m. in North Philadelphia at North 29th Street and Ridge Avenue during what police are investigating as a potential attempted robbery. The shot man was rushed to Temple University Hospital and was in critical condition.

The third shooting occurred just before 2 a.m. at a strip mall along Harbison Avenue near Roosevelt Boulevard in Northeast Philadelphia. Police found a man shot multiple times in the back and chest.

Minutes later, the fourth shooting occurred shortly after 2 a.m. in Southwest Philadelphia. A 24-year-old man was found shot in the 5900 block of Kingsessing Avenue.

About the same time, homicide detectives were called to the the deadly neighbor confrontation on James Street.

And in the sixth shooting of the morning, a 24-year-old man was found about 4 a.m. in the Fairhill section with a leg wound. A black Chevrolet Monte Carlo was seen driving away from the shooting, according to police.

None of the people involved in any of the shootings were identified by police by 7:30 a.m.

Weekend of Carnage Leaves 13 Shot, 3 Dead in Philadelphia
Police searching for shooters after gunfire around Philadelphia claims lives leaves people hospitalized
By NBC10 Staff
Published 2 hours ago | Updated 22 minutes ago

Two more people, including a teenager, were shot in Philadelphia overnight bringing the total number of gunshot victims in just over 24 hours to 13.

Police responded to the 400 block of Cheltenham Avenue in the Lawncrest section of the city around 11:30 p.m. Sunday to find a 15-year-old suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his torso, arms and legs. Medics rushed the boy to Einstein Medical Center where doctors listed him in critical condition but expected him to survive, Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

“This (boy) was shot right in front of his house while family members were sitting on the front steps… enjoying the evening,” Small said.

About 10 shell casings littered the sidewalk outside the boy’s home, investigators said, believing there were two shooters.

As police investigated the teen’s shooting, they were called to N 19th and W Jefferson streets in North Philadelphia were a man was also shot.

The overnight shootings brought the bloody total for Saturday night into early Monday to 13 shot and three dead.

A man shot one of his neighbors to death in the Frankford section of Lower Northeast Philadelphia and left another on life support and four people were wounded in a shooting in southwest Center City as gunfire erupted throughout the city Sunday morning.

The Frankford shooting left a 69-year-old resident of the 4700 block of James Street being questioned by detectives.

A man also died in a quadruple shooting early Sunday at 22nd and Fitzwater streets in Southwest Center City. Responding officers found four injured men stretched over two blocks of Fitzwater from 20th to 22nd streets early Sunday.

"We woke up at like midnight last night and heard about 11 gunshots, like one after another, and then we just ducked behind our bed for like 15 minutes," Cassie McGoldrick told NBC10.

All of the men were in their 20s, including the dead man who was 28.

Another person died around 7:30 a.m. Saturday when officers found a man face down in a parking lot on S 4th Street just north of Washington Avenue. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Gunfire also rang out early Sunday during an apparent robbery at N 29th Street and Ridge Avenue, at a strip mall along Harbison Avenue near Roosevelt Boulevard in Northeast Philadelphia along Kingsessing Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia and on Cumberland Street in the Fairhill neighborhood.

None of the people involved in any of the shootings was immediately identified by police.

The deadly shootings added to a trend of an uptick in killings in the city. As of Sunday, there were 168 homicides in Philadelphia, up 20 percent from this same time last year and the highest total of homicides in Philadelphia at this date since 2012.

"This is just indicative of the wanton violence that we deal with, particularly in these big cities, with young men, in particular, resolving their conflicts with guns," Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross said. "We spend a lot of time trying to keep young men alive."
