Philadelphia Police Department Investigates Multiple Shooting on Pratt Street

- Philadelphia Police cars and crime scene tape block off the Tanqueray Tavern on Pratt Street in Summerdale.

Earlier investigators say a group of feuding bikes locked in a gunfight is the reason why a 34-year-old man is dead, and three others are in the hospital.

It happened just before 6:30 p.m. Police say 15-30 bikers took off after the gunfire, but we found one motorcycle smashed down on its side not far away.

LaBrian Dale Parker, 34, was transported to Albert Einstein Medical Center and pronounced at 6:44 p.m. He was from Fredericksburg, Virginia.

A 53-year-old male with multiple gunshot wounds was transported to Aria-Frankford Hospital by private vehicle and listed in critical condition. He was later transported to Aria-Torresdale Hospital. 

Another 34-year-old male suffered a gunshot wound to his right thigh. He was taken to Lankenau Hospital by private vehicle and is in stable condition.

A 42-year-old male with multiple gunshot wounds was first taken to Aria-Frankford Hospital by private vehicle and then transferred to Jefferson Hospital.

At least one victim is wearing a ‘Wheels of Soul’ jacket. Cops say two other victims are in critical condition and considered in police custody.

A police source called it a “Biker War” and that has neighbors puzzled.
