Philadelphia Quadruple Shooting: What happened in Mayfair? 3 dead ,More than 50 shots fired

Three people were killed and another person remains in critical condition after more than 50 shots were fired in the Mayfair section of Philadelphia Quadruple Shooting. Let’s see more details about the incident that happened in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Quadruple Shooting

The quadruple shooting occurred at Rowland Avenue and Guilford Street in the Mayfair neighborhood just before 10 p.m. It happened around 10 p.m. Monday near Cottman and Rowland avenues, not far from Lincoln High School and the Roosevelt Mall.

It was an emotional scene as people presumably connected to the victims went beyond the crime scene tape to talk to the police. All types of belongings were spread out on the ground, including shoes and shopping bags filled with new clothes.

“We’re getting information from some family members that showed up saying that all four of these shooting victims may have been shopping earlier today. They may have been in a mall but we believe they were all together. That’s why you see some bags and boxes that appear to be freshly store-bought,” Philadelphia Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

Four Victim in Quadruple Shooting

Police received numerous 911 calls about gunshots in the area. Arriving officers found two shooting victims dead on the street at Rowland Avenue and Guilford Street.

Action News is told a third victim ran into a nearby home after being shot multiple times. Medics rushed him to the hospital. At the last check, he was listed as critical.

A fourth victim, described as a 24-year-old man, was taken to Nazareth Hospital in a private vehicle. He later died at the hospital. Police do not know at this time all of the victims’ identities, but most are believed to be in their late teens or early 20s. 

Police on Investigation

“Preliminary information that all four of these victims were together and they do know each other. We don’t have a motive for the shooting. We know over 50 shots were fired,” Small said.

Police are still searching for the shooter who happened in Philadelphia Quadruple Shooting. There are surveillance cameras in the area and footage may lead police to suspects.

Police are still investigating what led up to the shooting. No arrests have been made. Anyone with information is asked to call the police at 215-686-TIPS.

List of mass shootings in the United States in 2020

This is a list of shootings that have taken place in the US so far in 2020. Shootings are instances of violence involving many people and a firearm. 

There is no widely accepted definition and disagreement about the exact inclusion criteria. A mass shooting is defined as an incident in which four or more individuals, excluding the perpetrator(s), are shot in one location at about the same time. Gun Violence Archive is a nonprofit research organization that keeps track of shootings and associated characteristics in the United States. 

According to the Congressional Research Service, “public mass shootings” are those that result in the deaths of four or more people, excluding any survivors. Similar definitions are used by The Washington Post and Mother Jones, with Mother Jones conceding that their definition “is a conservative measure.”

Mass Shootings

The Washington Post and Mother Jones use similar definitions, with the latter acknowledging that their definition “is a conservative measure of the problem”, as many shootings with fewer fatalities occur. The crowdsourced Mass Shooting Tracker project has the most expansive definition of four or more shots in any incident, including the perpetrator in the victim inclusion criteria.

614 mass shootings in 2020 fit the inclusion criteria of this article, resulting in 446 deaths and 2,515 injuries, for a total of 2,961 victims. Compared to the previous year, there were 180 more incidents. However, according to Statista, the number is only 2 for 2020 compared to 10 mass shootings in 2019.

Wow. Got to give the criminals credit. They saw the murder rate decline last year and are really up to the challenge of blowing out the number this year.
