Philadelphia shooting: Man critically injured after gunmen fire 45 shots outside store in Crescentville

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Philadelphia police are searching for the gunmen who fired at least 45 shots and injured a man outside a store Tuesday afternoon.

It happened around 4 p.m. on the 700 block of Adams Avenue in the Crescentville neighborhood.

Video obtained by Action News showed the two gunmen pulling up in a dark-colored SUV and releasing a volley of bullets.

Police say the male victim crawled into the corner shop after being shot multiple times.

He was taken to a local hospital where he was placed in critical condition.

A van parked outside was riddled with bullets. At least six bullets went into the corner shop where people, including two teenagers, were inside, but police said no one was hit.

“We found 45 spent shell casings on the sidewalk just outside this general store, and half of the spent shell casings are gun shells,” said Scott Small, Philadelphia chief inspector.

According to Small, one of the shooters used a semi-automatic rifle and the other used a handgun.

Johaly Arias, who runs a children’s summer camp nearby, says she drives to the ice cream shop almost every day to get ice cream.

“It’s not safe at the moment. It’s really dangerous. At a summer camp, parents leave their kids and you come over to get ice cream for the kids — it’s really dangerous,” Arias said.

She adds that she doesn’t want to think about that happening to her children there.

Arias also has a message for shooters: “Guys you have to be careful with the community and think about your family. Let’s try to keep this community safe for all of us,” Arias said.

No arrests were made.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call police at 215-686-TIPS.
