Gunmen open fire on group standing outside Philadelphia gas station shop, police say

Authorities say no one was hit by gunfire when at least three shooters opened fire on group standing outside a Philadelphia gas station shop on Thursday night. 

Officers from the Philadelphia Police Department were called to the Liberty Gas Station on the 5300 block of Rising Sun Avenue around 10 p.m. for reports of a shooting. 

Chief Inspector Scott Small told reporters that a man bleeding from the head approached officers when they arrived. At least 10 people who were in the store were brought out of the shop one-by-one at the instruction of police, Small said. 

Police say they declared a barricade after several men ran inside the gas station and refused to come out. SWAT then resumed the barricade.

Investigators found over 20 spent shell casings, including rifle rounds, scattered in the gas station parking lot and on nearby Tabor Road. The storefront was peppered by gunfire and nearby parked cars were also hit. 

Small said investigators believe at least three gunmen walked up to a ground standing outside the shop and started firing. The victims took cover inside the shop and no one was injured by gunfire. 

A 22-year-old man suffered a cut to the head from broken glass and was treated at the scene, Small said. 

Police are now looking for two male suspects in connection to the shooting.
