NORTH PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - Three young people were shot, and two of them killed, in a late night shooting at a North Philadelphia intersection.
The victims killed were identified as Irell Williams, 17 -- hit in his right shoulder and upper back, and Dominique Gainey, 24 -- hit multiple times in his left side and right leg.
Police say the shooting happened just after 11pm Wednesday in the 1300 block of Rush Street. People on bikes rode by, firing several shots at close range.
Officers found those two victims on the ground with gunshot wounds to their torsos and chests. They were both taken to the hospital, but died.
While police were investigating at the scene, a third victim showed up at the hospital in a private vehicle.
The 20-year-old man had been shot in the arm. He’s in critical condition.
Police know there were numerous shots fired. They found multiple shell casings at the intersection of 13th and Rush. Most of them were just feet from where the two victims were found, so they were shot at close proximity.
Police have not released a motive or who the intended victim may have been.
They’re looking at evidence, talking to witnesses, and trying to find possible surveillance video.
