PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Philadelphia police investigating the shooting of two people early Friday morning heard more gunfire nearby and uncovered another scene where over 100 shots had been fired.
Officers responded to reports of gunfire at around 3:15 a.m. at the 2900 block of Frankford Avenue, near Birch Street in Kensington.
Police found a 33-year-old woman and a 39-year-old man with gunshot wounds to the arm. Both were taken to Temple University Hospital in stable condition.
Three spent cartridge cases were found at the site.
As the police were investigating, they heard several gunshots not too far away.
Officers made their way from Frankford Avenue to E Williams Street.
Police found over 100 spent bullet casings, including several rifle rounds, on Williams and Coral streets, about two blocks from where the original shooting took place.
However, no blood was found at the scene and no shooting victims were reported.
“It is possible that although all of these shots were fired, no one was hit by gunfire,” said Scott Small, chief inspector of the Philadelphia Police Department.
Police are investigating both locations but say the two incidents do not appear to be connected at this time.
“It was just coincidence that officers heard multiple gunshots about two blocks south just minutes after we found the two victims in Frankford and Birch,” Small said.
