Memorial Day in Philadelphia proved to be a violent night for residents of three city neighborhoods. Four people were shot in just forty-one minutes, leaving police scrabbling to aid the victims. Two men died in the shooting spree and two others were injured, including one woman. In the Logan section of the city, three men approached a couple in an intersection and opened fire. A 41-year-old man was hit in the head and neck and later died at the hospital. The woman was hot in the leg and is in stable condition.
Soon thereafter police were called to the Elmwood section of the city where Savun Trub, a 20-year-old who was riding his bike was shot in the head and killed. Investigators discovered 35 spent shell casings at one of the crime scenes indicating that a very large number of shots were fired. This led the police to believe that the shooting may have been indiscriminate,.
Just twenty minutes later, police were called to a neighborhood in North Philadelphia where another man was shot three times in the chest, stomach and hand. He is listed in critical condition. No arrests have been made in either of the shootings.
