More concerns about safety after another shooting near Temple University’s North Philadelphia campus

“I don’t feel that safe, to be honest. It’s kind of scary,” said Michael Judge, a sophomore.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — It’s a new semester at Temple University, but for students it’s the same old security concerns.

Two men were shot dead outside a deli on North Broad Street near campus on Tuesday.

The victims were taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition. The police are still looking for the shooters.

While Temple says the crime had no connection to the university, the proximity to campus has worried some students.

“I don’t feel that safe, to be honest. It’s kind of scary,” said Michael Judge, a sophomore.

The university recently sent students a security update for the coming semester. Some of these updates include a review of over 1,000 campus cameras with plans to add more cameras. Some students say they always try to go with a friend.

“I would leave campus and go back to my apartment, I wouldn’t do it … if I didn’t have him,” said Alicia Tally, a sophomore.

The university is also striving to improve proper lighting around campus, which tells students they feel safer.

Filming outside the deli is two blocks from where Temple University President Dr. Jason Wingard, plans to move this spring.

Wingard, who took up the position in July 2021, said he’s moving closer to campus to further engage with students and families in nearby neighborhoods.

Students said they weren’t sure his move would play a role in their safety.

“I feel like that makes it more of a target for people who live on this street because there’s someone high profile living there now who might be more suited to burglaries,” Judge said.
