One man was killed and two others wounded after at least 40 shots were fired in West Philadelphia, police said.

One man is dead and two others are recovering after gunfire erupted in West Philadelphia.

Officials say the three men were shot on the 800 block of North 46th Street Tuesday afternoon, around 4:15.

Officers arriving on scene found a 33-year-old man riddled with bullets, having been shot at least 10 times. Police rushed him to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.


The two other men, a 33-year-old and a 25-year-old, were also shot multiple times. They were each taken to Penn Presbyterian by medics and listed in stable condition.

Authorities say at least 40 shots were fired from three different caliber semi-automatic weapons.
