Seven people were injured when shots were fired into a crowd of people Wednesday evening, and now Philadelphia police have a person in custody, according to sources.

Two other suspects are still being sought as part of the investigation.

The scene unfolded Wednesday evening, around 6:30, on North Bambrey Street. Three men exited a sedan and shot into a crowd gathered on the street. Seven people were injured when the shooting ended.

"This senseless blatant disregard for life has no place in our city," said Philadelphia Police Commissioner Kevin J. Bethel. "The swift response and diligent work of our officers and Shooting Investigations Group Detectives have led to a significant arrest with more to come. I am both proud and thankful of the men and women of our department for the work they do each and every day. We will continue to work tirelessly to ensure justice for the victims and safety for all residents of Philadelphia."
