Man charged in shooting that left 3 wounded inside Holmesburg bar

A man has been charged in connection with a shooting that left three wounded inside a bar in the city's Holmesburg neighborhood.

Derrick Randall, 25, has been charged with one count of attempted murder, three counts of aggravated assault, three counts of simple assault, three counts of possession of an instrument of crime, and three counts of reckless endangerment. A firearm recovered by police and was legally registered to Randall, according to the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office.

The shooting happened at Ralph's Bar at the corner of Torresdale and Bleigh around 6:20 p.m. Tuesday.

Video of the incident indicates  Randall engaged in an argument with a woman inside of the bar, and that three or four men surrounded him, possibly to intervene. Prosecutors say Randall fired several shots into and around the crowd of patrons, hitting the three victims. 

Police say a man was shot in the leg. Another man was shot in the shoulder and suffered a graze wound to his face. A third man was shot in the leg and walked from the scene to his house where police found him. All are in their thirties. The suspect remained in the bar for a bit then left. 

The district attorney's office will be requesting he be held on $999,999 bail to help ensure that he is detained before trial.
